Inmates who are still in reception or have restrictions are limited to non-contact visits. Death row inmates may also receive contact visits, unless that has been suspended.

Visitation is typically held on Saturdays, Sundays, New Year’s Day, Christmas Day, July 4th, and Thanksgiving Day. Actual visitation times may vary slightly by institution.
