NEW YORK -- The Department of Corrections and Community Supervision (DOCCS) is suspending visitation to all correctional facilities.

This is effective Saturday, March 14, 2020 at 5:00 PM until April 11, 2020.

DOCCS says while this suspension of visitation will be temporary, they recognize the immediate impact on incarcerated individuals throughout the correctional system. However, the current situation demands this significant action to safeguard the health and safety of all incarcerated individuals, employees, as well as their families and communities. While in-person visitation will be impossible to replace, the Department will provide the following benefits to encourage individuals to keep in contact with their family and friends during this temporary suspension:

• Five (5) free stamps per week for use in accordance with Directive #4422, "Inmate Correspondence Program,"
• Two (2) free secure messages per week via electronic tablet, and
• One (1) free phone call per week in accordance with Directive #4423 "Inmate Telephone Calls."

This suspended visitation also applies to family reunion programs. However, legal visits will not be impacted by this visitation suspension. Legal visits will be conducted as non-contact (i.e. no physical contact allowed), as requests are submitted, and that option remains available within the facilities.
