Default Alabama DOC suspends all vistation & inmate passes

From Alabama DOC webpage:

Below is an overview of the system-wide preventative measures that have been in place to help ensure we keep this disease from impacting our correctional system:

• All visitation, inmate passes, tours, and volunteer entry into our facilities are suspended statewide.
• All inmates will be provided one free call per week (up to 15 minutes) and extended hours of availability.
• All inmate co-pays (including for medical services not directly related to COVID-19) are suspended for 60 days.
• All non-emergent inmate community physician appointments and procedures are suspended for 30 days.
• The ADOC is working with local oncologists to ensure inmates who require chemotherapy continue to receive treatment.
• Inmate transfers between facilities are suspended (security and healthcare exceptions may be granted)
• Vocational classes offered to inmates through J.F. Ingram State Technical College will be closed from March 17 – April 3, 2020.
• General legal visits conducted in-person by attorneys with inmates will be suspended for 30 days. Requests by counsel for an in-person meeting due to urgent matters will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
• All Work-Release and Work-Center Programs are suspended for 30 days – no offsite assignments will be permitted.
