Governor Tom Wolf AND HIS OFFICE ON March 6, 2020 issued a PROCLAMATION OF DISASTER EMERGENCY for Pennsylvania. The World Health Organization and Centers for disease Control and Prevention, (CDC) have declared COVID-19 a “public health emergency of international concern.”
WE have NO confirmed cases at this time. These plans are to prevent and contain the COVID-19 virus.
After several discussions and actively planning for the potential COVID-19 cases, the Perry County Prison Board and the Prison have made the following decisions that will go into effect immediately and remain in effect until further notice:
- All service providers, (One on One’s, Church, AA, GED, SO, Drug and Alcohol, and Perry Human Services) will NOT be allowed into the secure facility until further notice. If a provider has to interview an inmate for an assessment, they can schedule an appointment with the Counselor and do so over the secure phone.
- Private Attorney, Public Defender, District Attorney’s Office are asked to utilize the secure visitation phones, however if it is of urgency and they, the Attorney feels a face to face is of importance, the Attorney will be screened for any visible symptoms and the Warden will determine if the exception will be approved.
- Probation and Parole Officers that need to see inmates will also utilize the secure visitation phones.
· All visitation will be canceled until further notice.
Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
