The Georgia Department of Corrections (GDC) is responding with all available resources to help lessen the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) into our facilities.
The GDC has compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions in an effort to assist with information important to friends and family of offenders.
The following is a list of general COVID-19 information provided to offenders. Additional materials, including posters and a more detailed outline of COVID-19 via communication from the Warden, and display of posters around the facilities have also been provided.
The GDC has begun Modified in-person visitation at all GDC facilities. Visits will be made by appointment only and will be in keeping with social distancing guidelines. Instructions related to scheduling appointments and additional details can be found here: Facility Visitation Process.

The GDC will maintain a COVID-19 dashboard for providing the status of COVID-19 cases and vaccinations among GDC staff (self-reported), as well as among the state, county and private facility offender population. COVID-19 cases will be updated daily at 6:00pm, and vaccinations will be updated every Friday at 6:00pm, based on the most recent data available from the GDC’s Office of Health Services.
For the most current public information released by the GDC, please refer to our press releases and social media channels. All updates will be provided here, as soon as they become available.
