Default BOP - social visits begin to resume

Good news!

A handful bop facilities have posted social visit guidelines.

Here is an example, Butner Low:

Talked to my son who is at FSL Elkton and they have assigned a visitation day to everyone. Sadly visitation will only last one hour per month and no contact. Has day is Wednesday. That totally sucks because we would have to take a day off work and round trip it would be almost 9 hours then add the visitation time and the added time for clearance to get in we would be looking at 10 hours for a one hour visit. That is not going to happen. I just wish they would set up video visitations online.

Just curious if anyone has visited since the bop reinstated visits? I cannot set up mine due to lack of guidance on the staff end. There's guidance for the public on those memos, but I wonder if any facilities have actually gotten going in practice.
