Inmates who are unable to receive visits during their scheduled day may submit a written request to a supervisor requesting a special weekend visit. Inmates must submit their request by 5pm Thursday for a weekend visit. A supervisor will return the request by Friday approving or denying the request. Only approved visitors will be permitted into the jail for weekend visitation. The jail is adhering to state mandated covid-19 protocols. We will require that visitors wear an appropriate face covering while waiting in the lobby.   

Visitors will be required to wear a face covering at all times while in the facility. Upon entering the Jail Lobby visitors will be required to submit to a temperature check. A touchless thermal reader is positioned at head level and will complete the check. The device will provide a printed tag that must be worn while in the facility. Any visitor with a high temperature, flu like symptoms or other types of obvious illness will be denied access to the facility.
