COVID-19 Testing Among Incarcerated Population
All correctional facilities, Impact Incarceration Programs, and work camps are currently under Administrative Quarantine with no visits. Regular phone and video visit privileges will continue as normal. Administrative Quarantine is an intentional form of restricted movement within a facility to accommodate for unusual needs or circumstances, such as a pandemic outbreak. This measure must be taken to ensure the health and safety of those who live and work in our facilities.
We will continue to ensure men and women in custody receive all necessary treatment and services:
• Medical and mental health treatment
• Alternative educational, clinical and substance abuse programming
• Access to the phone and GTL kiosks
• Cleaning supplies
• Law Library
• Leisure Time Services
Facilities with confirmed cases of COVID-19 are placed on lockdown, which means there is no movement around the facility except for medical care. Staff who work with individuals in isolation and quarantine, as well as in healthcare units, are wearing full personal protective equipment (PPE) and all staff are wearing some PPE.
