What is the DOC policy being communicated to DOC entrance staff regarding the protocols of entry if someone attempting to enter the prison reveals that he or she has COVID-19 symptoms or has been exposed to a confirmed case?

Per the same March 15 memo by Jeannie Miller:

Those individuals that fail any portion of the enhanced screening protocol, displays obvious signs of a respiratory illness, (i.e. coughing, difficulty breathing), or refuses to participate in the screening process will be denied access to the facility/office and a supervisor should be contacted for further direction.

Entry denials and leave:

Those who are denied access will be encouraged to consult with their health care provider and follow up with human resources.  Refusing to participate in the screening process will result in assignment to home pending investigation.
