Interim COVID-19 Reporting Instructions
Due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the State of California is currently under a state of emergency and shelter-in-place order. The Division of Adult Parole (DAPO) places public health and safety as a top priority, and will uphold recommended public health measures.
In an effort to enhance social distancing within the parole offices, prior to release from custody, inmates will be provided with the following temporary reporting instructions. These instructions shall be documented on the CDCR Form 611 Release Program Study, and shall be adhered to effective immediately:
- Within the first business day, the parolee shall contact the assigned parole office as documented on the CDCR Form 611
- The assigned Parole Agent or the Officer of the Day will provide the parolee with additional instructions or assistance
- Parolees who are homeless, who are required to register PC 290, or do not have access to a telephone shall report to the parole office within the first business day following release
Please note: parolees who display any signs of being sick, such as having a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, will not be allowed entrance into the parole office.
The following are recommendations to avoid contracting or spreading COVID-19:
- Avoid close contact with or exposure to those who are sick
- Avoid touching eyes, mouth, or nose, especially with unwashed hands
- Avoid sharing food, drinks, utensils, or toothbrushes
- Wash hands often with soap and warm water for last least 20 seconds
- Clean objects and surfaces that are frequently touched
- Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue
Thank you and stay safe,
