Any updates on SOCF?

Hi Folks, 

Just wondered if anyone has any information about socf and if they are now in lockdown? I have a pen pal that I usually chat with via JPay but haven’t heard from him in a few days....starting to get a little worried but can’t access any details about the facility  as I am UK based. Last we spoke we were going to organise a phone conversation but he also mentioned about their schedules changing and he would explain later but not heard since. Really want to call the facility but don’t want to take up their time!! And not sure what they would be happy to tell me overthw phone. New to all this so finding it quite stressful lol. Thanks :)

Hi Hayley, 

I don't have pals in Ohio but if you go to their website, they have a Covid update and it would seem like SOCF isn't in full quarantine just yet, and only records one inmate as being in isolation. 
JPay could be a number of things, out of money (unless you send stamps) they're closing the kiosks to inmates or restricting it somehow. If you're still really worried, you could email the facility. 
Hope this helps, maybe someone else will be able to tell you exactly what's going on

Thank you so much for this! I couldn’t access the website properly, it’s been a pain. I have sent stamps so I think I will give it a few more days and go from there. Email is a good suggestion thanks.
