Weekend Visitation Canceled for All FDC Facilities

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida Department of Corrections’ (FDC) continues to respond to the effects of Hurricane Michael and, in an abundance of caution, has canceled weekend visitation for all facilities statewide for Saturday, October 13, and Sunday, October 14.

This cancellation is effective through October 15 and includes all major institutions, work camps, work release centers and annex facilities.

The secure operation of our correctional institutions is the Department's chief priority. Additional staff from throughout the state are responding to affected facilities in the panhandle. This proactive cancellation will allow staffing flexibility to assist in returning institutions back to normal operations.

FDC looks forward to resuming normal visitation as soon as possible.
