JEFFERSON CITY – As a precaution against the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19, the Missouri State Penitentiary has closed to visitors through April 5.

“Our primary concern is for the health and safety of our guests and staff,” Executive Director Diane Gillespie said. “It is important we do our part to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.”

Prison system staff will reach out to individuals who have tour reservations about rescheduling.

Regular updates will be communicated as they relate to tours via the prison system website, social media channels and email.
