Announcement
 

PERRY COUNTY PRISON

Karen A. Barclay

Warden

300 S. Carlisle St.

New Bloomfield, PA 17068

 

 

 

                                                                        March 13, 2020

 

All Inmate:

 

            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.

 

VISITATION

 

·         All visitation will be canceled until further notice. 

 

            Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.

 

                                                                        Respectfully,

 

 

                                                                        Karen Barclay

                                                                        Warden
