BASIC VISITING:
       Basic visiting status prevents direct physical contact between the inmate and visitor(s).  At Mill Creek Correctional Facility we do not have an area (at other facility’s basic visiting is behind a glass partition) to physically separate the inmate and the visitor so if the inmate or anyone visiting has been approved for basic status the following process will apply.
1.   All Basic visits must be scheduled with the facility in advance and are one (1) hour in length. The time will begin once the inmate is seated in the visiting area.   If you arrive late for your visit, you are not guaranteed the full one hour.  Based on space availability, your visit may be over at the original scheduled time.  Due to space limitations and other scheduled visits if you are thirty (30) minutes late for your scheduled visit, the visit will be denied and you will have to reschedule with the facility.   
2.  During a basic visit there is no physical contact of any kind. You may not purchase snacks or beverages for the inmate.  If you bring in photographs the inmate is not allowed to touch or handle the photos.
3.  Even if you’re approved for privileged visits if any person in your group is on basic visit status everyone in the group is classified as basic status for that visit.
4.   Any violations will result in termination of the visit.
 
NOTE: Staff will monitor your visits.  The staff may deny or stop visits when they have reason to believe that the visit might jeopardize the safety, security and/or the orderly operation of the institution.  It is important that you comply with all regulations and with the instructions from the staff. If you have any questions, or if you are unsure if something is allowed please ask the Visiting Room Officer in advance.
 
Exercise reasonable care and good judgment in all you do while visiting.
