Of the 11 correctional officers injured in several assaults at Centinela State Prison on Feb. 21, all but three were back at work today.
Five of the injured took no time off, three returned this week and three others are expected back next week, prison Public Information Officer Deavonne Long said.
The officer sustaining the most serious injury reported back to full duty today, Long said.
The prisons' four maximum- security facilities remained on lockdown today and will most likely stay that way until next week, Long said.
Immediately following the attacks, prison officials declared a state of emergency in the Level 4 facilities and then for the entire prison, excluding the minimum-security yards, Long said.
