TENNESSEE, USA — Families will be able to resume visitation at Tennessee Department of Correction facilities starting April 10.
Officials announced that a modified visitation scheduled will be implemented for visitors 18 years old and older on April 10, after visitation was suspended in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The decision was made based on community data from the state department of health and continued vaccinations at TDOC facilities.
Visitors will still need to schedule an appointment and wear masks to see loved ones. They will also have their temperatures check and answer COVID-19 screening questions. Inmates will also be required to wear masks and have their temperatures checked.
“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," said Commissioner Tony Parker.
Visitors will need to contact facilities directly to schedule an appointment. A full list of facilities with contact information is available below:
