Visitation transitions to Phase 2 in Nevada prisons

Visitation transitions to Phase 2 in Nevada prisons, mask mandate lifted for vaccinated staff and offenders

CARSON CITY — The Nevada Department of Corrections (NDOC) announced on Thursday, June 24, 2021, that all institutions will be transitioning to Phase 2 for visitation, effective immediately.
Under the new guidelines, fully vaccinated offenders will not be required to wear masks during visitation. However, all visitors will be required to wear a disposable or cloth face mask without valves, slits, or holes, regardless of vaccination status.

Phase 2 of visitation also allows offenders three visitors rather than two, visits will be increased to every two weeks and children as young as 2 may participate. Visits will remain in two-hour increments; however, out-of-state visitors may ask for an extended time by request to the Warden.

NDOC Director Charles Daniels said the decision to include every institution was based on current visitation numbers and the low rate of infection within NDOC facilities.

“We are looking to balance the mental-health and social well-being benefits to offenders and families afforded through visitation and the ongoing risk of COVID-19,” Daniels said. “Based on the number of visitors we’ve had over the past 30 days, we are confident we can increase visitors without compromising social- distancing standards.”

Out of an abundance of caution, protocols to reduce the risk of the spread of COVID-19 will remain in effect.

Visitors will still be required to pass a rapid test for coronavirus and masks will be required for the offenders and visitors throughout the visit.

“Correctional staff will continue to hold town hall meetings, post fliers and encourage offenders at each institution to get the vaccine,” said Brian Williams

The Nevada Department of Corrections is committed to building a safer community by striving to incorporate progressive best practices in all aspects of corrections. NDOC houses more than 12,000 persons with felony convictions in 18 facilities statewide. For more information visit www.doc.nv.gov.

NDOC Deputy Director of Operations. “We are continuously pushing the message of the benefits of vaccination.”  The Department also announced Thursday that face masks are no longer required for staff or offenders who have been fully vaccinated. Individuals are considered fully vaccinated for COVID-19 two weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines; or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.

Staff must submit proof of vaccination to Human Resources. Masks will remain a requirement for visitation regardless of vaccination status.  To schedule a visit or for more information, go to ndocvisitation.com. To read the updated mask policy, go to doc.nv.gov.

Renegade dog caught – That’s one down and two to go…

One of three feral dogs roaming Carson City captured by Tribal Animal Control

One of three renegade dogs has finally been caught and caged.  The animals were running in a pack around Carson City and were up to no good.  The band of canines attacked a number of deer that were grazing at the Lone Mountain Cemetery.  Several deer were wounded – one died.

The above dog was was trapped by Tribal Animal Control and is holding it until the Nevada Humane Society can pick it up and take it to their facility.  That leaves two, and possibly three others “out there.”  Law Enforcement reports they’re confident they know the comings and goings of the remaining “outlaws” and that they’ll be rounded up shortly.

Sheriff Ken Furlong gave credit to the partnership of Tribal Animal Control, Nevada Humane Society and the Sheriff’s Office for reducing the threat to Carson City area wildlife as well as domestic animals.
