- All Inmate programs and visitation has been stopped. Inmates are allowed access to e-postcards and phones to communicate with their families (currently they are allowed two free emails a week and a free phone call). We have also ordered board games and are giving extra free time.

- All individuals being brought to Intake are screened prior to entering and our Medical Staff may refuse if there is cause.
- We now have only one entrance, and all employees, contractors, Bondsman, and other essential visitors have to be medically screened.
- All inmates in custody at this time have had their temperature taken and we found no fevers.
- Our full-time medical staff is closely monitoring the health of all inmates.
- We have a separate housing area for new inmates that will be monitored for 14 days before being moved to General Population.
