If I've been to jail years ago and I am not on probation am I allowed to visit with someone in Chowchilla? Also is there visiting right now with the Coronavirus going on?
CDCR has launched limited video visiting to allow friends and family to safely connect with incarcerated people, beginning at five institutions by Nov. 28 with more added through the end of the year. In-person visiting remains canceled statewide until further notice as part of the department’s COVID-19 response.
Under the new system, each inmate will have the opportunity for a free 30-minute video visit every 30 days. Visits will take place on weekends and holidays, between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
The department will begin video visitation at five institutions the weekend of Nov. 28 and Nov. 29, with the goal to expand to all adult facilities by the end of the year. The five pilot institutions are Central California Women’s Facility, California Institution for Men, Mule Creek State Prison, San Quentin State Prison, and Valley State Prison.
If you have a felony you will have to get prior approval from the warden to visit.
