Under the authority of Wis. Stat. § 323.12(4) and Executive Order #72, effective
Monday March 23, 2020, all admissions to the state prisons and juvenile facilities
operated by the Department of Corrections are suspended, with exceptions for
some essential transfers. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution
as part of the statewide efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
The Department of Corrections (DOC) takes the responsibility to protect staff and
persons in our care seriously, and continues to work with the Governor and other
state and federal agencies on best practices to protect our staff and persons in our
care. DOC will continue to review the necessity of this order, and will work with
our county partners to discuss any potential modifications that may be necessary.
