Administrative Quarantine

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:

• Showers
• Medical and mental health treatment
• Alternative educational, clinical and substance abuse programming
• Access to the phone and GTL kiosks
• Cleaning supplies
• Law Library
• Commissary
• Leisure Time Services

New Admissions Suspended

Governor JB Pritzker issued an executive order suspending all admissions to the Illinois Department of Corrections from all Illinois county jails. The Director of IDOC will work closely with county Sheriffs and other partners in the criminal justice system to discuss any potential exceptions that may be necessary.
