When an inmate enters their name and number to our website, they will be issued date and a token number. The relative has the opportunity to speak with the prisoner at the specified time.”Meanwhile, all prison officers in the country have been given both doses of the AstraZeneca (Covishield) vaccine, State Minister Ratwatte added. The State Minister said that prison inmates will only be tested and quarantine as vaccinating them is not practical.
