Give prisoners the right to attend family funerals during the pandemic

Petition Details

During the COVID-19 pandemic many prisoners have been unable to attend the funerals of family members, ostensibly due to COVID restrictions despite the fact that funerals have been able to be attended throughout the pandemic. Restrictions on this should be lifted and all prisoners allowed to attend.

Additional Information

I know someone in prison who recently lost a close relative at a tragically young age. They were not able to attend the funeral and say a proper goodbye. Whatever mistakes people have made, they should still be allowed to say goodbye to their family members who have passed away.
