Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) is committed to maintaining social distancing to protect staff and those in our care from COVID-19.

In situations where social distancing is not possible, safe operating procedures have been developed in line with public health advice. These identify the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) items required in each situation and how they should be used.

Further information about how we are protecting staff and prisoners during this time can be found in the following publication:
