California prisons restart visitations 1 year into pandemic
California state prisons will soon resume limited in-person visits with inmates more than a year after they were halted because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Officials said Tuesday that visits, with precautions, will start April 10 as the prison system stabilizes after outbreaks that killed 216 inmates and 26 employees.
The worst outbreak came after a botched transfer of inadequately tested inmates in late May that killed more than two-dozen inmates and a correctional officer at San Quentin State Prison north of San Francisco. But corrections officials reported just 31 active inmate cases and 331 infected staff Tuesday.
