La Moye prison visitor regulations (FOI)Produced by the Freedom of Information office

Prepared internally, no external costs.
Could you please explain why HMP La Moye has allowed extra visits, hugging, family visits, kids play area open, a buffet at family visits where everyone touches the food and more but won't allow two adults to kiss?
The rule seems backwards now, it's not part of any regulations or guidelines. We wear a mask and still do a PCR on every entry.
So this basic gesture shouldn't be held off anymore. Is there another reason behind it? As not one visitor can understand why you aren't allowing this but allowing everything else.
The States of Jersey Prison Service current no-kissing policy is agreed with the Covid Safe team, specifically Infection Prevention & Control. This falls in line with other community-based organisations such as care homes.
The non-kissing policy is part of a multi-layered approach to keeping prisoners safe.
