Default Has anyone heard of additional restrictions on packages?

I'm just wondering if there are any additional restrictions on packages due to COVID 19 issues? I would like to send my son a box of books and some food items since we can't visit. We are familiar with what's in the directive as far as allowable items, but I worry they won't let packages in for fear of exposing prisoners and others to the virus.

Call and ask the facility just to be sure! Things are changing day by day and I did hear they were considering suspending packages but wasn’t official of course..

Nothing has changed in the package room directive regarding allowable items and receiving packages. NYS is giving 5 free stamps for outgoing mail due to the suspension of visits.


Oops apologies I responded to wrong post!
