1. Visitors must be pre-approved and on an active visiting list provided by the inmate.

3. Visits may be scheduled 7 days in advance, but no later than 24 hours before the proposed visit.

4.  Only one housing unit is permitted to utilize the visitation area at any given time. Each housing unit has a corresponding visitation schedule, and the available scheduling blocks will be posted.

5. All visitors are required to wear a mask while inside the facility. We are excited to reunite friends, family, and loved ones, but we must go about this in a safe manner. Those who refuse to wear a mask will be asked to leave and the visit will be terminated.
