COVID‑19 mandatory 15‑day modified program extension

The Department continues to evaluate the current operations to reduce staff and population exposure to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) by minimizing movement throughout the state. On January 6, 2022, the memorandum titled COVID-19 Mandatory 15-Day Modified Program provided direction to institutions regarding a statewide modified program that will be in effect January 9, 2022 through January 23, 2022.

Due to the continued rise in COVI D-19 cases throughout California and within our prisons, there is a need to further extend the above modified program through Sunday, February 13, 2022. Beginning February 14, 2022, institutional operations will be consistent with the department’s Roadmap to Reopening Plan.

Institutions are expected to share this information with their staff and the Inmate Advisory Councils. Thank you for your continued efforts in managing this COVID-19 pandemic.

If you have any additional questions, please contact your respective Associate Director, or Regional Health Care Executive.
