In response to the threat of Covid-19, the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) and Her Majestys Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) took decisive action to protect staff and prisoners. The decision to bring in these restrictions was not taken lightly, and we fully appreciate the consequences for prisoners and their families.

This Framework sets out how we will take decisions about the cautious easing of these restrictions, guided by public health advice and the best available data. There will not be a simple easing of restrictions across the estate, but this national guidance will ensure there is consistency in decision-making by governors.
