Covid Visitation Information

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Arizona Department of Corrections, Rehabilitation, and Reentry has taken significant actions to mitigate the risk and impacts of COVID-19 in its facilities. Keeping our staff, inmates, and communities safe continues to be our top priority.

To help protect the health of each inmate, staff member, family member, or friend inside the facility, contact visits will remain temporarily suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic until it is deemed safe to reopen the visitation process. Video visitation will continue for those inmates who have visitation privileges. Inmates continue to be eligible for one 30-minute video visit per week to allow as many inmates as possible to participate. No fees are associated with the video visitation.

In the future, when in-person visitation is allowed, we will make advance notice to the inmates, family members, and or friends.
