Facility Visiting Status

Check this page frequently for updates on the phase status of each institution and important details for requesting a visit.

Some areas of California will be experiencing severe weather conditions in the coming days. CDCR urges those traveling to our institutions to plan ahead for a safe trip.

Before heading to an institution for an in-person visit, download the QuickMap app or visit the QuickMap website for up-to-the-minute information on road conditions, traffic, closures, chain control, and more.

If an institution must cancel visiting due to weather, those with an appointment will receive a notice through the Visitation Scheduling Application (VSA). If you plan on participating in a walk-in visit, please contact the institution beforehand.

The severe weather may potentially result in power outages and/or internet disruptions in parts of the state. Please be aware that these outages may impact video visiting appointments.
