FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ARKANSAS DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS SUSPENDS ALL NON-ESSENTIAL UNIT OPERATIONS DUE TO INCREASE IN COVID CASES AMONG STAFF

NORTH LITTLE ROCK –Secretary of Corrections Solomon Graves notified Department leadership on Wednesday, December 30, that in response to a recent increase in staff COVID-19 cases, all Department of Corrections (DOC) facilities will immediately enter into lockdown status. On Tuesday, 192 DOC employees were positive for COVID-19 and on leave.  Facilities will remain locked down until at least January 15, 2021. The need for an extension will be evaluated at that time.

While locked down, all non-essential movement within facilities or between facilities will be suspended. A visitation pilot launched earlier this month at Benton Work Release, Delta Regional Unit, Northeast Arkansas Community Correction Center and Northwest Arkansas Community Correction Center will be suspended. Finally, only emergency intakes of inmates will be scheduled. 

“The goal of this lockdown is to lessen the impact of the increase in community cases,” Secretary Graves said. While providing an update on COVID-19 vaccine distribution to staff on Tuesday, Secretary Graves reminded staff of the ‘3 Ws’ of COVID-19 response by saying, “While we wait to receive a vaccine, I want to again stress the three things we can do today to protect ourselves, our families, and our facilities and offices: WASH your hands, WEAR a mask, and WATCH your distance.” The Secretary went on to further encourage social distancing when the said, “…please follow the advice of public health professionals and limit social gatherings. This is normally a season of celebration for many of us. I am asking that you join me in making this a season of sacrifice so we can enjoy the Spring, Summer and beyond as healthy as possible.”

Visitation Update

November 20, 2020

The Arkansas Department of Health and the Arkansas Board of Corrections have approved a framework developed by Corrections Secretary Solomon Graves for modified in-person visitation during the COVID-19 public health emergency. The plan calls for the resumption of phased, limited, in-person visitation at select Arkansas Department of Corrections prisons and community correction centers.

One-hour, appointment-only visits will be limited to adult, immediate family members. The expansion of in-person visits by friends and legal counsel will, in addition to the resumption of volunteer services, be reevaluated in January 2021. Additional details about where and how visitation will resume are to come.

Visitation status updates will be posted on the Department’s website at http://doc.arkansas.gov.

Reduced Rates for Communication Remain Effective

LOWER RATES FOR PHONE CALLS, VIDEO VISITS, AND EMAILS REMAIN IN EFFECT*
We understand how important visitation is for inmates and residents, especially during the holiday season. The safe resumption of in-person visitation is a priority for the Board of Corrections, Secretary Solomon Graves, and both Division Directors. We greatly appreciate the ongoing patience and understanding of residents, inmates and their loved ones during this public health crisis. While visitation is suspended, we encourage friends and family to remain in contact through phone calls and video visits. To help with that, we have worked with our communications partners to provide lower rates for phone calls and video visitation until December 1, 2020.

*Please note that you must be approved for regular visitation before applying for video visitation.

FACE MASKS HELP SLOW THE SPREAD OF COVID-19

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends wearing cloth face coverings (masks) to help slow the spread of COVID-19. They offer a great online resource with helpful information on the wear and care of cloth face coverings, as well as how to make them (even if you can’t sew).

INMATE VISITATION SUSPENSION EXTENDED TO JUNE 1, 2020
Our continuing efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19 within our facilities has called for the Arkansas Department of Corrections to extend the suspension of inmate visitation until June 1, 2020. The suspension includes all prisons and community correction centers, and it applies to regular and special visits.

LOWER RATES FOR PHONE CALLS, VIDEO VISITS, AND EMAILS REMAIN IN EFFECT
Because we want you to remain in touch with your loved one during this time, lower rates for phone calls, video visitation and emails will remain in effect until June 1 as well.
