Short Update: HMPPS updates guidance on visiting someone in prison, as prisons reopen in the UK

FairTrialsAdmin - August 7, 2020 - COVID-19 Updates, Prison conditions

HMPPS has updated the guidance on visiting someone in prison, as prisons are now opening. An adult prison may be visited only if the visitor is not suffering from COVID-19 symptoms or does not live with someone with such symptoms.  

Visitors must also be over 18 or accompanied by an eligible adult. They must be a partner, parent, sibling, child, foster-parent, grandparent, carer or significant other of the person visited, an individual on whom the person in YOI or STC relies on for emotional support, or a social worker for looked after children.
