A full van consists of eight (8) people out of 12 to facilities shorter than (two) 2 hours. Some facilities require a full van of twelve (12) and may require an overnight stay at a local hotel due to transit times and distance. There are many people who want to visit their loved ones. To better assist you with filling up a van, please visit our Community Forum. The Community Forum will allow you to communicate with other loved ones of the incarcerated who may be looking to visit the same facility. Please engage with others in the community so we can get you to your loved one.
IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR VISITING
Updated May 13, 2021
NOTICE: If you received an email Thursday, May 13 between 3:00 PM-3:30 PM, stating that your scheduled in-person visit has been canceled for this weekend, this is due to a technical issue while upgrading the Visitation Scheduling Application. Your in-person visit is NOT cancelled, and you should show up as planned. If they have not already, visiting staff will be reaching out to you individually. If you receive/received a cancellation outside of this time-frame then your visit maybe canceled for other health or safety reasons and you should check with the institution visiting staff with any questions. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused. For updates, please visit the Visiting Facility Status. If you have further questions, please reach out to the visiting staff of the institution you wish to visit: https://www.cdcr.ca.gov/visitors/visiting-sergeant-lieutenant-phone-list/
Changes to requesting an in-person visit:
CDCR will no longer be using the Visitation Scheduling Application (VSA) to schedule in-person visits as we make upgrades to the system to allow for more flexibility in scheduling visits. At this time, VSA will only be used to schedule video visits.
Prospective visitors must now schedule an in-person visit by emailing the institution directly. The email process allows more flexibility when scheduling in-person visits as each institution navigates the phases of the Roadmap to Reopening. Detailed instructions on how to use the e-mail reservation system, can be found at https://www.cdcr.ca.gov/visitors/how-to-schedule-a-cdcr-video-visit/.
The email request window for an in-person visit to take place on May 22 or May 23 is 8:00 AM, Saturday May 15 through 8:00 AM Monday, May 17.
Changes to visiting:
- Effective immediately, fully vaccinated visitors may present their valid vaccination card indicating they are at least two weeks past the last injection in their vaccination series in lieu of a negative COVID test result. (See more details below).
- In-person visits will expand to two hours starting May 22-23. That weekend, some institutions may also be eligible to increase the number of visitors per incarcerated person from one to three visitors above the age of two, depending upon public health criteria (See information below).
- Family visit details will be announced soon.
Friends and family should regularly check the Facility Visiting Status page for updates on the status of in-person visiting at each institution, which can be found at https://visitorreservations.cdcr.ca.gov/VisitingStatus.aspx. See additional details on the expanded phased approach to the visiting program below.
As part of CDCR’s COVID-19 prevention efforts, normal visiting will be canceled statewide until further notice based on California Department of Public Health guidance for mass gatherings. At this time, overnight family visits and legal/attorney visits will be held as scheduled. CDCR values visitation as an essential part of rehabilitation, and the Department must make difficult decisions in order to protect public health and wellness of all who live in, work in, and visit state prisons. Visitors should monitor CDCR’s website for more information and updates.
