Special Message: IDOC Comprehensive Response to COVID-19

Public Visitation:

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.

Attorney Visits:

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.

Please return to this site for updates about restrictions for public and volunteer staff visitation, as well as any extension of the ending date for attorney / offender in-person visitation.  Once restrictions are lifted the regular ‘Visiting Guidelines’ listed below will again be in effect.
