Regional Care Facilities

The Washington Department of Corrections (DOC) is taking deliberate steps to continue to mitigate the spread of infection to the incarcerated population, staff and general public.

Suitable locations, referred to as a Regional Care Facility (RCF), were previously identified by department leaders and key stakeholders, including local facility subject matter experts. These RCF’s would safely and comfortably house incarcerated individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 and may require more comprehensive medical attention and physical isolation from healthy populations, but do not require hospitalization. Should an infected individual’s medical conditions or needs become severe, the department and agency medical personnel will work collaboratively with hospital partners to provide the necessary medical care.

(Current as of Monday, September 28, 2020. Numbers are updated Monday-Friday, except for holidays)

Incarcerated individuals from the Confirmed Cases chart are transported, when necessary, to one of the regional care facilities listed below.
