MEMPHIS, Tennessee — NEWS RELEASE FROM TENNESSEE DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTION

The Tennessee Department of Correction (TDOC) will resume visitation for inmates at all facilities beginning next weekend.  A modified visitation schedule will be implemented on Saturday, April 10.

TDOC suspended visitation in March, 2020 as COVID-19 began to spread in the community. The decision to resume visitation, for visitors 18 and older, was based on community data from the Department of Health, as well as vaccine administration at each facility.

In order to maintain social distancing guidelines, all visitors will be required to schedule an appointment. Visitors will be required to wear masks, have their temperatures checked and respond to a series of Covid-19 screening questions prior to entry. All inmates will be required to wear masks during the visits and have their temperatures checked prior to entering the visitation gallery. Hand sanitizing stations will be available throughout the area.

“The Tennessee Department of Correction is committed to protecting the safety and well-being of our staff, inmates, visitors and volunteers,” Commissioner Tony Parker said.  “We understand the importance of maintaining contact with family members and we have worked to ensure the lines of communication between inmates and their loved ones remained opened during the pandemic.”
