Michael Ferrigon had asthma and diabetes. The state transferred him to the prison with the most COVID deaths.

A fabric mural memorializing Michael Ferrigon hangs in the Bloomfield home of his parents, Franklyn and Dorothea Ferrigon. Michael Ferrigon contracted COVID-19 while incarcerated at Osborn Correctional Institution where he was serving a two-year sentence. (Michael's first name is spelled incorrectly on the banner.) The former Bloomfield High School linebacker died on November 18 after a month on a ventilator.   |   photo by: Cloe Poisson :: CTMirror.org
