—Coronavirus Information—

MTC is closely following any developments in the coronavirus situation that might impact the people we serve at the facilities we operate. The safety of our staff, those in our care, and the community is top priority.

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly restricted visitation at all MTC-operated correctional and detention facilities. While safety protocols will be similar among all government corrections/detention agencies, there are government-specific procedures in place.

The Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC) says frequent hand washing can reduce exposure to and prevent the spreading of the coronavirus. The CDC also recommends:

  • Staying home if you have flu-like symptoms
  • Avoiding contact with people who are sick
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Coughing and sneezing into a tissue and then immediately throwing the tissue in the trash

At MTC we recognize the great importance that you –as family members and friends– play in the lives of the men and women we serve. MTC partners with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to provide individuals in their care with a comfortable, helpful, and attentive environment. ICE detainees are housed at MTC facilities for very short periods of time, and during that time, MTC provides these men and women with opportunities to further their education, to participate in meaningful activities, and to prepare in all ways to return to their homes and families.  See the MTC Difference in Immigration Detention!
