Yes it is on lockdown and it's looking like it's going to remain on lockdown until at least the middle of July.

No phone calls and the mail is hit or miss, sometimes I get his mail in 2 days but it's now been over a week since I have heard anything from him. Other people on this site have said it's been taking 2 weeks to get any mail and some haven't received anything at all. The USP is a little crazy right now, they are on lockdown more than they are off and they have been on lockdown a month already.

My hubby just received all my mail I've been sending since May 17th last friday. Since the lock down I received 2 items of mail from him. These 2 letters were sent on time. I hope everyone else has heard from their loved one now?

Has anybody spoken to anyone when calling USP? Just wondering if anyone has heard any new estimations of the end of lockdown.

I use Amazon and never have any problems with it, since it is a PO BOX the shipping does take 4-5 days. I also do magazine subscriptions through amazon as well. At the beginning of the lockdown I ordered him single copies of magazines until his subscriptions kicked in at inematemags.com. They are really expensive but they were fast with shipping.

I'm new to all this - what's the RDAP program? My husband just got transferred to USP Victorville after spending 90 days in the SHU. He also lost visits and phone calls for a year so we were really excited to be able to email but from what I'm reading they're constantly on lockdown

Here's the bop program statement that includes RDAP.
https://www.bop.gov/policy/progstat/5330_011.pdf

If he has lost visits and phone calls, I will be surprised if emails will still be allowed.

Question? Are you strictly assigned to the VICTORVILLE USP THREAD?

Just wondering?

Thanks!!! Honestly the lack of communication is horrible. For the first month he was in the SHU they never told him he lost his visits so I went to visit - made it past the pat down, metal detector and actually sat in the visitation room waiting for him. About 45 minutes of waiting they asked me to follow them back up to the front and advised he couldn't have visits. So ya it wouldn't surprise me if his email privileges were taken away too and we just don't know it yet.
