Visitor ADA Accommodations

IDOC Visitation Rules and Information—please review before visiting

The Illinois Department of Corrections is implementing a multi-phase plan to resume in-person visits as safely as possible. The number of visitors per two-hour time slot are limited to ensure social distancing measures are closely followed. Phase two, which takes effect June 2021, loosens restrictions for visitors and incarcerated people who are fully vaccinated. At this time, each incarcerated person is permitted three visits per month. To visit Pittsfield Work Camp, you must sign up at least seven days in advance.

Video Visitation

It has come to the Department’s attention that GTL video visitation opportunities have been limited for individuals who solely rely on Apple products for video visits. As a result, the Department is offering Webex as an alternative video visitation platform for families and loved ones who rely on Apple products. GTL will provide FREE video visits for their users until the GTL platform is compatible with Apple products. Webex visits will also be free. Please note that video visits provided by GTL and Webex will be subject to monitoring and recording.
