TDOC suspends visitation at 4 facilities, including Morgan County Correctional Complex

Due to an increase in active COVID-19 cases in the community,
the Tennessee Department of Correction announced this week
that it has suspended visitation at four TDOC facilities, including
the Morgan County Correctional Complex until further notice.

The Morgan County Correctional Complex, as well as the
Bledsoe County Correctional Complex, Turney Center Industrial
Complex, and Mark Luttrell Transition Center, resumed visitation
in late September and early October, but officials said Tuesday
that “after a rise in COVID cases statewide and with a lower
than expected number of visitors over the past few weeks,
visitation is being suspended while the department monitors the
potential impact on staff and inmates.”

TDOC first suspended visitation at all facilities in early March in
order to protect the health and wellness of staff, inmates, and
visitors. The department says it is actively monitoring COVID-
19 developments and will continue to follow the guidance of the
Tennessee Department of Health and the Centers for Disease
Control.
