The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to have an impact on communities across the District and the country. Along with the rest of the District government, our agency remains open. In accordance with Mayor Muriel Bowser’s decision to modify the work schedule of District of Columbia employees, the CIC will operate under a 100% telework schedule beginning today, March 16, until March 31, 2020 from 9am to 5pm in an effort to mitigate the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
The CIC is committed to monitoring and reporting on the conditions of DC inmates within the DC Department of Corrections (DOC) and within the Bureau of Prisons (BOP). As of today, no outside visitation is permitted within the BOP or the DOC, so all pending inspections and or site visits will be postponed until a later date. We have been inquiring about procedures within DOC and BOP facilities, and we have also been monitoring the news for any information pertinent to incarcerated DC residents. All information gathered has been immediately disseminated by the CIC website and our social media channels.
So far, there are no known cases of COVID-19 within the DOC or the BOP. In addition, inmates can still communicate with the CIC via Corrlinks and letters. We will continue to keep the community informed and updated with any information that pertains to incarcerated DC residents. For up to date information please visit our website: www.cic.dc.gov , or visit one of our social media channels: Twitter: @dc_cic_info and Instagram: @dc_cic. If you have any questions, concerns, or information please email the CIC at [email protected], or call our direct line at (202) 478-9211.
Stay safe and stay healthy,
Director Donald Isaac and the CIC Staff
