Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, ODOC has partnered with Securus Technologies to provide inmates two free phone calls each week while visitation was suspended. With visitation reopening, these free phone calls will continue until April 15. After April 15, phone calls will still be permitted, subject to standard rates and policies.

Staff symptom screening

Thursday, March 19, 2020

All ODOC staff undergo symptom screening upon entry into any correctional facility. Any inmate making an emergency move from one facility to another also undergoes symptom screening. All new inmate receptions are screened for symptoms and quarantined for 14 days in housing identified specifically for this purpose. The ODOC is taking all precautions to keep COVID-19 from infecting any of our inmates or staff.
