California State Prisons To Offer Virtual Visitations


California state prisons will soon offer video visits after the suspension of in-person visitation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The CDCR announced that the program will launch by Thanksgiving weekend for five prisons and become available statewide by the end of the year. Eligible inmates will be allowed a free 30-minute video visit every 30 days starting November 28 for San Quentin State Prison, California Institution for Men, Mule Creek State Prison, Valley State Prison and Central California Women’s Facility.
