In March 2020, all in-person visits to Utah’s prisons were suspended and supplemented with 10 free 15-minute phone calls a week.

According to department officials, each inmate will be allowed one 40-minute visit or one 30-minute tablet visit per month.

These visits must be scheduled in advance and will require all visitors to follow normal visiting requirements and COVID-19 protocols.

Here are the requirements:

  • Will need to be 18 and above
  • Live in the same household (must be verified)
  • Must not have been out of the country in the last 30 days 
  • Must not have been around anyone with COVID-19 for the last 14 days
  • Must have a temperature less than 100 degrees when arriving on prison property
  • Must wear a mask
  • No physical contact between inmates and visitors will be permitted

Only two visitors will be allowed at a time in order to “facilitate a safe visiting process,” the Utah Department of Corrections said in a news release.

Anyone with questions about the visiting process is asked to contact the department at 801-576-7013
