ALLEGHANY COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — After suspending visitations more than three months ago due to coronavirus concerns, the Alleghany County Sheriff’s Office and Regional Jail is set to resume inmate visits — albeit with altered protocols — on Tuesday.
While local officials continue reviewing guidelines from the CDC, the Virginia Department of Health, the Virginia Department of Corrections, and Gov. Ralph Northam, the Alleghany County Sheriff’s Office and Regional Jail says the following visitation schedule will go into effect Tuesday, June 30, and it will stay in effect until normal visitation can resume:
- Tuesday: 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. for D Housing
- Wednesday: 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. for C Housing and B Housing
- Thursday: 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. for Dorm 2 and Segregation
- Saturday: 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. for Dorm 1 and Medical (except those under quarantined will not be allowed visits)
- Sunday: 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. for A Housing, F Housing, and any female inmates in Intake and Medical (except those under quarantine will not be allowed visits)
In addition, the sheriff’s office says each inmate will only be allowed 15-minute visits with two visitors per week. However, those visitors must already be on the inmate’s visiting list, authorities say.
