SUFFOLK SHERIFF’S OFFICE POSTPONES REOPENING JAIL VISITING
Suffolk County Sheriff Errol D. Toulon Jr. announced today that inmate visitation at the Suffolk County Correctional Facility will remain closed until further notice. Visiting was previously scheduled to resume on April 6, 2021 with special safety precautions and procedures in place. However, due to the recent uptick in positive cases among staff members and the Suffolk County population at large, visitation will remain closed to keep the virus out of the jails.
Sheriff Toulon reiterated, “The health and safety of inmates, visitors, and staff remain paramount during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have been very successful in keeping the virus out of our jail population so far, and these measures will remain in place until this most recent wave is stemmed.”
