Information for the Family and Friends of Residents at HMP Bronzefield
Covid-19 Update - July 2021
At HMP Bronzefield, we continue to adapt our regimes and reduce the restrictions we currently have in place to meet the latest safety requirements. We are making progress but we must do it at a slower pace than the rest of the community and we can’t follow the same lifting of all restrictions on 19thJuly.
Public Health experts have told us that prisons are more likely to suffer from longer outbreaks of infection because they are closed environments, with everyone living and working closely together.
Keeping everyone in our prisons safe from this virus has always been, and continues to be, our number one priority and we must not do anything now that could threaten the progress we have made so far.
We’re delighted that we can welcome families and loved ones in for social visits, but please follow our safety guidelines to protect the safety and wellbeing of everyone living and working at the prison.
From Tuesday 27th July we are delighted to announce that a hug at the beginning and end of the visit is allowed, if both resident and visitor agree to a lateral flow test (LFT). Children under 11 years of aged are still permitted contact and do not have to test. Non-contact visits will continue to take place.
Additional safety measures will remain in place until we are confident the risk of infection is mitigated.
