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

We have 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.
