COVID-19 announcements

On 8/14/20, the Division of Juvenile Justice modified its visitation phases to include the use of COVID-19 community transmission data from the Department of Health and Social Services dashboard alert levels to guide our visitation phases.

The Division of Juvenile Justice is lifting the suspension of visitation in our facilities in phases. Our statewide probation offices will also be resuming some field and office visits.

We will update any suspension of visitation due to quarantine or advancement to a next level of visitation on our website as soon as reasonably possible. Please note that we do not have real time access to update the webpage.
