I hate that too and thanks <3 I'll let you know when I hear from mine as well. I normally type my letters and print them since it's easier for me but I won't get ink for my printer until Monday so I'm handwriting my letters for now. It's been a long while since I wrote a letter by hand

Haven't started trying to find some info on why they may be lock down but nothing! Read some articles that were uneasy do they get mail on lockdown? I barely write cause I'm too busy with work.

Yes mail is delivered during lockdowns, usually by having the COs bring it to the cells, so it can sometimes slow down considerably.

So, how do they do the mail? Do they just call the inmate's name or what?

If they are locked in their cells, the CO hands them the mail through the food slot. If they are out of their cells, mail call is done the same as when there is no lockdown. Everyone groups around the CO, who calls out the names of everyone who received mail that day.

So, they just call everyone in a big group and hand out the mail to them? I thought they had to verify their number or something like that

I haven't heard from my loved one or any of the inmates that he knows in there since August 2nd but I think the lockdown should be ending on Monday. I'm hoping and praying that it will end on Monday.

Speaking of letters, my loved one should be getting a letter from me today that I sent to him last week. I'm hoping that he will tell me why they was on lockdown whenever he writes me or email me back when he can email

Here is an update that someone has told me just now so I'm passing it to you all from another user on here: They have just called and they said it's back to normal now but it will probably be a line for phones. I'm hoping that you all will hear from your loved ones soon. Please let me know when you hear from yours and I will do the same
