The Nevada Department of Corrections will resume prison visits starting next month, officials said.
Visitations will begin on May 1, more than a year after they were canceled in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to a statement from the department posted to Facebook on Tuesday.
Visitors must be at least 5 years old and will be administered a rapid COVID-19 test, the department said. They also will have their temperatures taken and must wear a face mask.
Only two people will be allowed to visit with a prisoner at a time, the department said. Visitations are being kept at a “limited capacity,” and visiting hours will vary at each institution.
The department’s statement did not include details on specific facilities.
