That’s the last I heard from mine and as he was typing he said I got to go we’re getting locked down. When I called they said they can’t give out any info at this time. That’s what they use to tell me when they went on lockdown in Indiana as well so assuming they are I guess... thank y’all

Hi JodysGirl!! I still haven’t heard from my loved one since Saturday morning... I was wondering if you’ve heard from yours yet :-( I called the prison Monday and know they’re not on lockdown anymore but I’m wondering if they’re not allowed on the computers or phones. I hear from my loved one via corrlinks like 4-5 times a day so this is not normal =(

When federal prisons are put on lockdown, the prisoners almost always lose phone & email communications, and mail often slows way down too. No commissary shopping either, so if they run out of stamps or stationary, they may not be able to send you a letter explaining the situation.

The prison won't tell you they are on lockdown, but will usually tell you if visitation is suspended. If it is, they are locked down.

Well, the prison directly told me they were on lockdown. I talked to someone Saturday at 9pm and again Sunday morning. They answered after the 5th or 6th time I called and answered with, “is your call in reference to staff or inmate” and I replied “inmate” and she said “ok ma’am were on lockdown, you’ll have to call back.” But Monday I called and they asked for inmate name & # and confirmed his visitation (standard Sat/Sun 8-3 and I think she mentioned Th or Fri from like 3-8 but I don’t remember) so I’m so confused now =(

I normally do as well. But still nothing. I left a message for the chaplain never returned my calls so got in touch with his counselor bc his dad had a heart attack yesterday and had to be flown 2 hours from his home. Which, he has now made it out of surgery thank god! But I hope they notified him like his counselor said

I noticed some officers say they are and some don’t tell you. They typically don’t say anything. They usually put a banner on the sight saying visitation has been cancelled until further notice. However they have not done so at this time, so I’m thinking it may be over soon. I will call and see if they have visitation open on Thursday and see what they say.

Yea he said he has no idea when they will come off lockdown. He was pretty vague on what happened I guess so it would be sent. I think mail is slowed down.
