As of Today, March 13, 2020 at 2:00 PM, all visitations at the Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office Jail we are suspended until further notice. This is in response to the COVID-19 outbreak and the Disaster Declaration issued by the Office of the Texas Governor authorizing the suspension of Visitation.  The health and wellbeing of the inmates in our custody and our employees are of paramount importance to us. We understand that this may be an inconvenience to those wishing to visit their loved ones in our custody however we must take this action to help prevent the inmates in our custody and our employees from being exposed to COVID-19. Our Video visitation feature is still available and we will still be able to process bonds for those inmates that are eligible for release. We will also make every effort to allow attorneys to visit their clients so that we can limit the impact on the court system however, attorneys will be screened for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 prior to entering the visitation.”  [emphasis added]
