SCI Forest visitation resumes June 25

From staff reports

The state Department of Corrections announced Thursday that three state prisons, including SCI Forest, have finalized plans to reimplement in-person visitation.

Visitation will start Friday, June 25, at SCI Forest, and Monday, June 28, at SCI Albion and SCI Phoenix.

Visitors are reminded that visits must be scheduled online at least three days in advance.

To comply with reduced visiting room capacity limits, visitors who arrive at a facility without an appointment will be turned away. Available visitation timeslots are determined by each facility, based on an inmate’s housing location within the prison.

Each visit will be at least one hour in duration. No-cost video visits remain an option for people to connect with incarcerated loved ones.

Information on scheduling an in-person or video visit and the reopening of DOC facilities is available at

Visitors may begin scheduling in-person visits via the inmate visitation system seven days before the start date.

Dates are subject to change.
