Tennessee Department of Correction (TDOC) officials say that state inmate visitation will resume.
TDOC stopped visitations in March of last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But a modified visitation schedule will begin Saturday, April 10.
According to TDOC, the visitation will be allowed for visitors 18 and older.
In order to maintain social distancing guidelines, all visitors will be required to schedule an appointment. Visitors will be required to wear masks, have their temperatures checked and respond to a series of COVID-19 screening questions prior to entry.
All inmates will be required to wear masks during the visits and have their temperatures checked prior to entering the visitation gallery. Hand sanitizing stations will be available throughout the area.
