Correctional Facilities

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) recommend that extensive activities be put in place to slow the spread of respiratory virus infections (such as COVID-19) and to minimize their impact and protect the most vulnerable populations. Correctional and detention facilities face unique challenges for controlling COVID-19 transmission among incarcerated persons, staff, and visitors, as these facilities can include a range of components (e.g., custody, housing, healthcare, food service, recreation, education) in a single physical setting. These facilities must continue to take precautions while community spread of COVID-19 continues, even as other settings begin to loosen restrictions.
