BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota corrections officials will ease some coronavirus visitation restrictions in state prisons next week.
In-person prison visits had been limited to one adult since they resumed in late March.
Beginning Tuesday, visitors will be allowed to bring up to three minors per visit.
Visitors must test negative for COVID-19 and advance scheduling is still required.
Visitors 6 years and older must still wear a mask, but it doesn’t have to be an N95 mask as is required now.
The changes come as the number of active coronavirus cases is decreasing in the state where there is a slight increase in vaccinations.
