Coronavirus Update - Inmate Visitation Resuming

Inmate visitation will resume on Sunday, June 7, 2020, at regular hours.  However, some things have changed due to our need to practice social distancing:

  • All visitors must wear a mask upon entering the prison, and that mask must stay on throughout the visit.
  • Only one adult visitor is permitted, per inmate.  No children are allowed to visit.
  • We will only allow groups of three in to visit at one time.
  • All visiting booths and phones being used will be disinfected after each group of visits are completed.
