FRANKFORT, Ky. (WYMT) – Governor Andy Beshear, along with state Justice and Public Safety Cabinet Secretary Mary Noble, announced that in-person visitation will resume at state correctional facilities beginning on June 20.

Visitation dates and times can now be scheduled for all facilities operated by the Department of Corrections and the Department of Juvenile Justice.

The date of June 20th will allow enough time for staff to implement safety protocols such as the installation of Plexiglas in visitation areas. The date also gives unvaccinated family and friends of inmates time to receive a COVID-19 shot.

“The day has finally come when we can safely reopen our adult and youth correctional and residential facilities,” said Gov. Beshear. “Again, if you have not received your shot of hope, please make an appointment so you can visit with your loved one once again in-person.”
