It’s not listed as being on lockdown on the cdoc website. They’re usually pretty good about keeping lockdowns updated. I always check there first. https://www.colorado.gov/cdoc/

I have never seen them listed on there as locked down but I know they have been. Not sure if they are on unit or facility lock down or if they are off already . Hopefully it won’t be for too long.

They don't list lockdowns on the website - they list when visits are cancelled.

Are you able to call the facility? Sometimes they will shut down the tablets and phones but are under normal operations.

I have heard that BVCF has had a lot of issues lately and they have had lock downs frequently.

They seem to be on lockdown a lot and the phones and tablets can be switched off a lot .Just have to wait it out I guess.

Oh sorry, that's right. They list visitation cancellations. I guess I kind of always assume if they're on lockdown then visitation will be cancelled so that's my first clue. I could be wrong about that too...

They don't always lock down the entire facility. Sometimes it is a just one unit and they don't always cancel visits. It depends on the lock down.

As I am in Colorado to visit son for spring and summer where I visit regularly at BVCF(Buena Vista). I have been here for 2 months so far and they have had numerous lockdowns. Actually even when you can visit as the past 2 weeks allowed, they were on modified lockdown which has been weeks. They were on lockdown for flu for 2 weeks atleast in March 2018 and ever since they seem to have problems. I am very frustrated and can't get any answers as to why this is so long and so often. They are making it worse for the inmates when they keep them in their cells day after day. Would you like to sit in your bathroom with another person for 2 weeks or how about 1 month? That is how small the area is they live in. Any ideas from anyone about this?

BVCF is a pretty rough place to be. They have lots of trouble it seems. Lots of fights and gang issues I have heard.
Their cells are very tiny and it does put them on edge to be locked down so often. I hope you enjoy your visits.

Are you still able to visit whilst the lock down is going on ?

As far as visiting while they are on lock down- it depends. If it is a just a specific unit and your loved one is in a different unit then you can usually still visit.
