Bureau to Resume Social Visitation - October 2020

The BOP recognizes the importance for inmates to maintain relationships with friends and family. During modified operations in response to COVID-19, the BOP suspended social visitation, however, inmates were afforded 500 (vs. 300) telephone minutes per month at no charge to help compensate for the suspension of social visits. As a modification of the BOP's Phase Nine Action Plan, and in accordance with specific guidance designed to mitigate risks, social visits are being reinstated. The Bureau of Prisons (BOP) will resume in-person social visits for inmates at all 122 facilities nationwide no later than Saturday, October 3, 2020, as described below.
