NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- For the first time in a year the Tennessee Department of Correction says it will resume family visits with inmates beginning Saturday.
Visitors will be required to wear a mask, undergo a temperature check and answer COVID-19 screening questions. Inmates will have to do the same.
Families are being asked to schedule their visits in advance.
There’s a separate phone number for making that appointment for each prison in the Tennessee system. Those numbers and visitation times are listed below.
To date, 42 Tennessee prison inmates have died due to COVID-19 complications. More than 6500 have tested positive for the virus.
