Default In Person Visits will begin again on August 15th in Pennsylvania

I was made aware that in-person visits will begin again on August 15th. Does anyone have any information about what they will look like (ie. restrictions, requirements)? The letter that was given to inmates doesn't specify.

I just did an extensive search and didn't find anything but it looks like you should keep an eye on the PDOC's website concerning that. I did find a graph talking about their reopening up after COVID but when it came to visitation it was non specific

Hi there how did you find out as I have done a search and I was unable to find anything. Is there is any information on line I am sure it will help members.

My fiancé is at SCI Dallas and was given a paper from Wetzel saying this. A friend of mine’s husband is at Quehanna and was given the same paper. I did research and found nothing online to date.

That is odd that they did that but nothing was on the PDOC site. I would still keep an eye on that though. That's probably going to be your best resources. That and the facility specific websites should be the first updated to give information because they surely don't want people showing up not knowing if or what restrictions there are.

I received a letter from my fiance and he included the letter from Wetzel and it definately mentions August 15th. We should be hearing something soon, I would think, regarding restrictions and requirements and how everything will be done. The paper he got is legitamate though.

Does the letter say the entire PDOC or that facility specifically?

Entire PA DOC. As I stated earlier, an inmate at Quehanna received the same correspondance.

A memo from Secretary Wetzel to all inmates was issued on June 18th.
1. One June 30th, the DOC will end the free cable TV and free email vouchers.
2. The (5) free phone calls will continue until July 15.
3. The commissary limit will remain at $100 and 12 letters per month.
4. Virtual visiting will continue until further notice (we hope forever). In-person visits will resume, hopefully starting August 15, when three criteria are met:
a) The entire state is in the Green Phase of reopening;
b) The SCI has reached Level-1 of the DOC plan; and
c) A formal scheduling system is in place.

That is helpful and good to know, although at the rate at which COVID-19 is spiking (again) I kind of doubt they will open for visits on 8/15/20. Not to rain on anyone's parade... Fingers crossed though because I CAN NOT wait to visit in person!!!

Yeah I feel the same way at this point. I am trying to not get my hopes, or his hopes, up about the August 15th date. There isnt much to look forward to with this whole prison situation, but visits are what get us through. I am ready for it to go back to normal.

My fiancé was advised today that SCI Dallas will be opening for in person visits on August 15 with a lot of restrictions. Guests, inmates and employees will all be required to wear a mask. Visits will only be held for one hour increments (which sucks for someone like me who will drive two and a half hours to get there), there will be plexi glass booths set up with plexiglass dividing both us and the inmates and us from other visitors, and there will be no touching at all.

This is information that was told to him and other inmates by employees at SCI Dallas.
