Personal visits to SEQ prisons suspended

Due to cases of COVID-19 in the community, personal visits have been suspended to all South East Queensland prisons on the advice of the Chief Health Officer (CHO).

This decision was made to protect the safety of prisoners and our officers and includes all prisons from Maryborough to the NSW border.

All other visits, including legal, service provider and official visits will continue with appropriate social distancing.

Every person entering the prison will undergo health screening including thermal imaging, and new reception prisoners are subject to 14 day isolation protocols.

This suspension will be regularly reviewed in line with advice from the CHO.

Contact the correctional centre to find out about alternative ways you can talk to a prisoner.
