Special Message: IDOC Comprehensive Response to COVID-19
To limit the opportunity of introducing the COVID-19 virus to a prison facility, visitations at this facility have been suspended until further notice. This includes Volunteer Staff.
Requests for general in-person legal visits between attorneys and offenders must be made to the facility where the offender is housed. Attorney/offender visit requests will only be scheduled when safe to do so on a facility-by-facility basis and are subject to being postponed or rescheduled. A reliable alternative to an in-person attorney/offender visit is to schedule a confidential phone call. The offender must have the attorney's phone number added to their approved telephone list. All calls are 'collect' unless the offender utilizes prepaid minutes.
