As a response to COVID-19, the Clay County Sheriff’s Office has taken measures to help limit the spread of the virus and to protect our residents and visitors.
Newly arriving inmates are screened before being admitted into the jail facility. An additional screening takes place during the inmate processing procedure. Once admitted into the jail, new inmates will be housed in a limited occupancy dorm for up to ten days to reduce the likelihood of transmitting the COVID-19 virus. After the quarantine period, inmates will be transitioned to the general population dorms.
Disinfection and cleaning procedures for the inmate housing units occur several times throughout each shift.
Video visitation is the primary method to visit an inmate. Professional visits are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
