Federal Bureu of Prisons COVID-19 Action Plan

The Bureau of Prisons (BOP) is carefully monitoring the spread of the COVID-19 virus. As with any type of emergency situation, we carefully assess how to best ensure the safety of staff, inmates and the public.

BOP COVID-19 Modified Operations Plan

BOP's Emergency Response

Every institution is like a small city and to cope with major emergencies or other significant interruptions of normal operations, they each have continuity of operations (COOP) plans that provide guidance to staff.

BOP's COVID-19 Response

In February 2020, the BOP's Public Health Service (PHS) staff were placed in operational dress uniforms to be ready to respond to COVID-19 incidents by the Assistant Secretary for Health.

BOP's COVID-19 Collaboration Efforts

BOP PHS Officers have been deployed for national travel-related screening at airports and NIC has been asked to share BOP-related guidance with state and local corrections.
