According to The Washington Post, Virginia is reconsidering how it administers solitary confinement at the state’s super-maximum security prison, Red Onion State Prison, where 500 inmates, including some with mental illnesses, are kept in an isolation cell 23 hours per day with minimal bathing and recreation. The state is planning on appointing a team of experts to examine each prisoner and design personalized plans for rehabilitation.
