Visiting with Incarcerated Individuals at the Suffolk County Correctional Facility

We have made the health and safety of inmates, visitors and our staff the highest priority during the COVID-19 pandemic.  

 

Due to the continuing threat of COVID-19, the Suffolk County Sheriff has instituted numerous special procedures to reduce the chance to spreading the virus during visits.  As of June 30, 2020, only non-contact visits will be permitted until further notice. 

Visits are limited to 30 minutes and reservations are required to visit an inmate at the County Correctional Facility.  Please note that you must bring a face covering with you and wear it at all times.  

 

Visitors not of the same household must maintain social distancing as much as possible.

 

Note that for everyone's protection, we will take your temperature upon arrival. Any visitor with symptoms of COVID-19 or potential exposure to the virus should not enter the facility.

Our Response to COVID-19 and How are Protecting County Inmates, Staff and Visitors

The Novel Coronavirus, COVID-19, was an unprecedented global health crisis that caused massive disruptions and challenges in every industry and sector around the world.  The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office was no exception.  However, Sheriff Toulon was extremely proactive and worked tirelessly to stay ahead of the virus to maintain the health and safety of officers, staff and inmates in both Suffolk County facilities. While many other correctional facilities struggled to contain the spread of the Coronavirus in their facilities, only one county inmate contracted the virus while incarcerated at the county jail and approximately 2% of staff.  

Protecting public health has meant sacrifices for all involved.  We have had to reduce visiting times, rehabilitative programming has been limited, and everyone must wear a mask and keep their housing areas clean and sanitary at all times.  

We have also changed the way newly arriving inmates are housed during the first 14 days of incarceration.  Dedicated housing for new inmates has been set up in Yaphank to allow for greater social distancing and ongoing medical evaluation to prevent the spread of the virus to the general population.  A strict protocol of proper hand-washing, around the clock sanitizing of both the Yaphank and Riverhead facilities, enforcement of social distancing and mask wearing have all played a part in maintaining minimal opportunities for the virus to spread. County inmates have also stepped up to help prevent the spread of coronavirus inside and outside the jail by sewing thousands of face coverings for widespread distribution. 

We are all in this together, and by maintaining order and sanitation within the jail, we will continue to keep your loved ones and visitors safe during this difficult time.
