MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, citing a decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases reported in the county, says it will soon allow for onsite inmate visitations again.

Sheriff Derrick Cunningham said visitations at the Mac-Sim Butler Detention Facility will begin again on Dec. 10.

Despite reopening for visitations, the sheriff noted several COVID-19 safety measures that will remain in effect. Those include:

  • Only those with scheduled visitations will be permitted in the building. There is no open seating or waiting area for third parties.
  • There are no public restrooms available for visitors.
  • Facemasks must be worn by all visitors while in the detention facility.

Cunningham said his office will continue to monitor the situation and adjust safety protocols and procedures as needed.
