This means that personal visits will be able to booked from Friday morning for the following week.
In line with community restrictions, face masks must be worn at the following centres:

Please contact the relevant correctional centre for details of current visitor numbers permitted under COVID-Safe plans, and to book contact and non-contact visits.
Anyone entering a correctional centre will continue to undergo health screening and temperature checks. For the safety of our officers and the prisoners in our care, please do not come for a visit if you are unwell or showing any COVID-19 symptoms, even if they are minor (please self-isolate and get tested immediately).
If you have been in a COVID-19 hotspot in the past two weeks, please do not attend a centre.
Where social distancing is not possible, in accordance with current Queensland Health advice, masks are recommended at all centres.
All correctional centres have a COVID-Safe plan in place, including the requirement for social distancing, hygiene and other fundamental measures that help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
We also continue to pay close attention to regular cleaning of frequently touched surfaces as well as maintaining regular hand washing or sanitising, good cough and sneeze etiquette and adhere to workplace COVID-safe plans.
We understand that restrictions have had an impact on those in our care, especially on their families and we thank everyone for their patience and understanding at this time.
A cautious approach as well as stringent planning and execution has served us well and has kept COVID-19 out of our centres, and we thank you for your patience.
Virtual personal visits are also available.
