Holding Center, Correctional Facility lobbies closed to public

The Erie County Holding Center and Correctional Facility lobbies were closed to the public starting Thursday, except for bail operations, the Sheriff’s Office announced.

Family members and friends were encouraged to use electronic kiosks in the vestibules of both facilities for trust account deposits, and the Sheriff's Office said it is working with its commissary provider to offer additional deposit methods.

Officials added that both facilities are being cleaned and sanitized regularly, with adequate supplies on hand for the foreseeable future, and that hand sanitizer and soap remain available to all staff and inmates throughout the facilities. Officials said they are advising the Commission of Correction on the state of both facilities on a daily basis.
