Prison superintendent Eugene Phillip says 1735 remains closed to visitors for the foreseeable future.
He said this is due to measures implemented in March to prevent the coronavirus from reaching the prison.
The prison boss is attributing this measure to the fact that no confirmed cases of covid-19 has been recorded inside HMP.
He says the no visitor policy will remain in the event of a second wave.
Phillip says while lawyers are permitted to visit clients, they must do so under strict protocols already in place.
Meantime, the practice of relatives bringing meals for inmates has also been discontinued.
“Except for five prisoners who have special medical conditions, all the inmates, convicted and on remand, are fed the food prepared by our kitchen,” Phillip told Pointe Xpress.

No private food needs to be brought in. As the old people say, “Eat what’s put before you.” 1735 is a PRISON for convicted inmates, not a hotel.
