by ebenezer

The Department of Correctional Services has announced that inmates can now receive visits at correctional facilities across the country.

In a statement on Monday, 7 September 2020, the department said the decision came after it reviewed its COVID-19 risk-adjusted strategy.

“Inmate visits to correctional centres and remand detention centres shall be permitted under strict conditions, observing COVID-19 health protocols, as well as departmental Standard Operating Procedures”, said department spokesperson Chrispin Phiri.

President Cyril Ramaphosa announced in August that the country would move to alert level 2.
