Default Utah Prison Visitation Information

Visitation & Facilities

Note: Check the Visiting Notices page to find out whether any special conditions apply to the facility you plan to visit. These conditions may change daily.


Visiting criteria for people showing possible signs of illness

Due to the recent illness spreading across the nation we are not allowing visitors access if they can answer yes to any one of the following questions:
  1. Do you have a fever, sore throat, muscle aches, joint aches, and shortness of breath or a cough? If it has been more than 10 days since your symptoms have gone away, you will be allowed to visit.
  2. Are you currently feeling ill or in need of medical care? You will not be allowed to visit if we detect obvious signs of an illness.
  3. Are you currently being treated for any contagious illness? We understand the inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience in this matter.

The calendars for Promontory/Timpanogos will be changing as of May 1st. You will notice that Promontory will visit according to the inmate’s last name and the current alphabet for Timpanogos had to be altered to accommodate the extra session that was added for both area's.

CUCF- The maximum number of visits allowed is three per four day visiting block. No more than one two-hour visit per day.
Uinta 3 now has their own visiting calendar they visit Fridays from 5:00 to 6:30 and 6:30 to 8:00. Please look at the calendar listed on the visiting page to see when you can visit. It goes by top or bottom tier, so make sure you talk to your inmate and find out when you would visit.

Due to safety, security and limited seating issues, we may not be able to accommodate all visits. Vistors/Inmates may not choose where or how they visit. !

Uinta 2 & 4 are on a set schedule. You can get copies of the schedule from the Uinta Admin Officer when you check in for your next visit or refer to the Uinta 2 & 4 visiting schedule posted on the web.
