In-person visitation – without vaccination requirement – will resume at Dauphin County Prison on July 19.

Visitors will have their temperatures checked prior to entry and will be required to wear masks.

The mask requirement is in accordance with CDC guidance for congregate living facilities.

“Visitation improves the mood, wellness, and outlooks of inmates, so we wanted to resume visits as soon as we could – in a safe and responsible manner,” Dauphin County Commissioner and Prison Board Chair Mike Pries said.

Limited visitation had resumed on June 18, with vaccination requirements.

Inmates are responsible for notifying their visitors of the schedule and have them added to a visitors list.

Visitors will have a temperature check and answer a series of COVID-related questions prior to entry.
