Ventura County Todd Road Jail Suspends In-Person Visitation

Nature of Incident:
Ventura County Todd Road Jail Suspends In-Person Visitation
Location: Todd Road Jail, Santa Paula, CA
Date & Time: December 21, 2021
Unit(s) Responsible: Detention Services Division


Since the onset of COVID-19, the Sheriff’s Office has worked to create plans to minimize the
spread of this illness inside the jail facilities as a precaution to protect those who are currently
The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office continually monitors all individuals in the custody of the Sheriff to quickly identify and respond to concerns. Over the past several days, we have identified a spike in COVID-19 cases among the population at the Todd Road Jail in Santa Paula. This spike coincides with the spike seen within the County population.
Out of an abundance of caution, the Sheriff’s Office is quarantining the entire population at the Todd Road Jail to slow the rate of transmission and ensure public health and safety. To help accomplish our goal of slowing the spread, in-person social visits have been cancelled at the Todd Road Jail for the next nine days. Video visitation is still available.  ( The suspension of visits will be reevaluated on December 30, 2021, and reinstated once it is safe to do so.
Cancelling in-person visits, will not only protect lives, but it will also protect the visiting public from exposure by other visitors in the public lobby and confined visiting spaces.  Professional visits, including those by attorneys, will still be permitted but only as a non-contact visit.
The Sheriff’s Office values visitation as an essential part of inmate rehabilitation but at this time,
the health of inmates, visitors, and staff must be protected.
