SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Department of Corrections will allow in-person visits at the Utah State Prison again starting in June.
"Our incarcerated population have not seen their family in-person for more than a year," said Brian Nielson, executive director for the Utah Department of Corrections, in a news release.
The Department of Corrections plans to roll out a phased approach to the visits, which will include COVID-19 precautions.
Starting in early June, in-person visiting, and volunteer and religious services, will resume at the Utah State Prison (USP) in Draper and the Central Utah Correctional Facility (CUCF) in Gunnison.
