COVID-19 Visitation

Facilities

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. 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. Visitation is being conducting via phone calls or Zoom, please contact the individual facility for details on times.

Probation Offices

What to expect as a visitor to your local probation office:

  • All appointments are by appointment only. This is to ensure that prior to the meeting staff are able to conduct a verbal COVID screening with all parties who will be attending the meeting.
  • All visitors coming into the probation office will be required to wear a mask.
  • Staff will do their best to make sure social distancing for non-family members or family members not residing in the same household can social distance in the lobby and during the meeting.
  • All visitors will be required to wash their hands or use hand sanitizer upon entering the building.
  • All visitors will be asked COVID screening questions and their temperature will be taken. Anyone who answers “yes” to any screening questions or has a temperature over 100.4F, will not be able to enter the office. If visitors are unable to meet in person, staff will attempt to set up the meeting via the phone, Zoom or other appropriate means.
  • Visitors can bring in their own thermometers, but must take their temperature in front of staff. If the reading is consistently low, visitors will be required to take their temperature with a sanitized thermometer provided by staff.
  • Staff will document any visitors who enter the building for tracing purposes, by writing their name and if they were approved or denied on a daily log sheet.
  • All probation offices have daily cleaning protocols and will also clean after each meeting to include lobbies and meeting rooms.

Wish Lists for DJJ Facilities

Due to COVID-19, youth are not able to participate in their normal activities. In order to help keep our youth busy and engaged during this time, staff (with youth input) have created Amazon Wish Lists for facilities. Please make sure to read the rules at the top of each list. We thank you greatly for your donation!

Family and Youth Well-being During COVID-19

DJJ acknowledges the stress and uncertainty this pandemic is placing on families and individuals. We would like to thank the Office of Children’s Services, the Child Welfare Academy and the Alaska Children’s Trust for putting together the following YouTube videos:
