COVID‑19 protocols for visitors

Vaccination/Testing/Masking

Fully vaccinated visitors must present their valid vaccination card, a printout of their vaccination record from the California Department of Public Health Website, or a Xerox copy of their valid vaccination card, indicating they are at least two weeks past the final injection in their vaccination series in lieu of a negative COVID test result. Proof of vaccination must include the name, date of birth, date(s) of vaccination and vaccine manufacturer. 

Unvaccinated in-person visitors over age 2 must show proof of a negative Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) COVID-19 test obtained within three days prior to the visit. Self-administered home test results will not be accepted.

There is no on-site testing available.  Both the COVID-19 vaccine and various forms of testing are now widely available in our communities.  Visit the California Department of Public Health website to find a free testing location near you.

Minors under age 2 are not allowed in regular visiting at this time.

All visitors, vaccinated or unvaccinated, will be provided with a procedure mask to wear during the visit.

Procedures for Incarcerated Persons

Effective Jan. 3, 2022, incarcerated persons must be fully vaccinated, or have an approved medical or religious exemption, prior to participating in the in-person and family visiting programs. “Fully vaccinated” is defined as being 14 days past the last injection of a series. Fully vaccinated and unvaccinated incarcerated persons will be permitted to participate in the video-visiting program.

All incarcerated persons, vaccinated or unvaccinated, will be given a procedure mask to wear during either their in-person or video visit. Fully vaccinated and unvaccinated incarcerated persons will be permitted to participate in the video-visiting program.

Walk-in visits are allowed, but only with incarcerated people who are vaccinated. Please go to your facility access webpage for specific information relative to walk-in visits at your facility.

Five people may visit one incarcerated person at a time. Minors under age 2 are not allowed in regular visiting at this time. The photo ducat program is now available.

Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, physical contact is limited to a brief embrace at the beginning and end of your visit.
