15 Mar In-person visiting to resume April 1, 2022
With the decrease of Covid-19 cases throughout the state, the Utah Department of Corrections is resuming in-person visiting beginning April 1, 2022.
There will be no age restrictions. Inmates can now have up to three visitors per session, as long as at least one is a child.
Protocols that were previously instituted — barriers, social distancing, masks required for those over 3 and no visitors with symptoms — remain in place.
In addition to visiting, in-person Board of Pardons hearings will resume April 1, 2022, for all death hearings. Non-death hearings for those housed at the Utah State Prison will also be in-person. The same protocols that were previously in place for Board hearings will remain, including social distancing in the hearing room.
Non-death hearings for those housed at the Central Utah Correctional Facility and county jails will continue to be conducted virtually.
