I was wondering how many others with loved ones in Ohio Department of Corrections has started back visiting or have visited their wap pp? What's it like at each facility? How's the interactions? What's the differences from before and after?

I've been looking to schedule an meet my wap pp for the first time but an very nervous. Any suggestions?

I finally went an made the in-person visit...I've been twice so far and both times were very different. The last being better but still not the way I've heard pre pandemic visit were. The first visit only 8 inmates from 1 unit could have 1 single visit a day during 1 time slot only and we were separated by a plexiglass shield. The second visit not segregated visit times and days and it was now full room capacity but no physical contact like hugs or handshakes but we could eat from the vending machines. The visit was only 1 hour in length both times.

I've never been to an ODRC prison before. I've however been to a PA prison many years ago and from what I hear they have finally started back visits but they are different from before. I no longer have family there but a friend of mine still has her husband, son and a brother in PA prison.

Check to see if the facility that your friend is in is even allowing visits. I know most Federal prisons are on a constant yellow, I have no idea about State prisons. In one of the support groups I'm in I know no one has had any contact visits. Masked and behind glass, some institutions have video visits.

Actually, that's not entirely true someone just had a contact visit at Coleman 1 but I think it was an unusual circumstance that day.
