Covid Visitation Information

Visitation remains suspended at all institutions in Alaska statewide. We understand how important family contact is to both the inmates and their loved ones, and we look forward to reopening visitation as soon as it is medically safe to do so. Due to the congregate nature of a correctional facility and the rise in cases throughout the state, it is important DOC remains vigilant in protecting the health and safety of those who live and work in our institutions. We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding.

Since February 2, 2020 DOC has been screening every inmate booked into a DOC facility for COVID-19. On February 3, 2020 the DOC Infectious Disease Response Team held its first tabletop exercise for coronavirus response and has been meeting at least weekly since that time. A clinical care guide for DOC medical staff has been in place since 2/27 and a full departmental response plan was drafted March 4. On March 23 the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) issued its Interim Guidance on Management of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Correctional and Detention Facilities. The Department was pleased to see that the safeguards already put in place in Alaska met the standards issued by the CDC.
