Department of Corrections Secretary John Wetzel recently announced that, beginning May 26, the DOC started the demobilization (or reopening) process for state prisons and will use a system of five levels that is guided by the governor’s statewide reopening plans.

“As the governor reopens Pennsylvania, we, too, must return to a more normal operation, and get back to preparing individuals to successfully reenter society,” Wetzel said. “I’m very appreciative of our staff who have worked tirelessly to slow the spread of this virus, and it’s time to move forward with caution.”
