DOVER, Del. (AP) — Delaware correction officials say children can now visit inmates at correctional facilities for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic began.

The Delaware Department of Correction announced Tuesday that in-person visits at all of its facilities have been expanded to include children and youth under 18.
