Welcome to the Cook County Department of Corrections online scheduling application for in-person visitation in an outdoor, socially distant setting.
Visitation will only be granted to those who have completed the CCDOC Visitor Application and received confirmation of being approved for visitation privileges. Visitation scheduling requests must be submitted using the below application 48 hours in advance. At this time, as we continue to combat COVID-19, in-person visitation will only be allowed for loved ones in the CCDOC who have received the COVID-19 vaccine.
For questions about scheduling, please contact CCSO.InPersonVisits@ccsheriff.org.
If you are not able to schedule an in-person visit using this application due to not being approved for visitation and you would like more information on how to become approved, please visit the Individual in Custody Locator or contact the Visitor Information Unit at 773-674-8225 or 773-674-8194.
Jail staff, in close coordination with our partners at Cermak Health Services, continue to combat COVID-19 through interventions such as increased sanitation procedures, social distancing, usage of personal protective equipment, mask-wearing, aggressive testing protocols and vaccinations. The health and safety of CCDOC staff, individuals detained, non-employees and the public continue to be the primary concern of the Sheriff’s Office and guidelines will be updated in accordance with recommendations provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Illinois Department of Public Health, the Cook County Department of Public Health, and the Chicago Department of Public Health.
The following guidelines have been put in place for in-person visitation:
- All visitors will be screened by staff for symptoms of COVID-19, including but not limited to a temperature check and brief questionnaire, prior to entry.
- All visitors are required to wear a face mask that covers their nose and mouth and maintain social distancing (at least 6 feet) at all times during their CCDOC in-person visit, and failure to do so will result in removal from the CCDOC.
The CCDOC reserves the right to revoke security credentials for any reason and remove anyone from the CCDOC when security needs or public health concerns warrant their removal.
If you have COVID-19 symptoms, you will not be permitted entry into the CCDOC. If you experienced any COVID-19 symptoms within 14 days prior to your scheduled CCDOC in-person visit or have tested positive for COVID-19 within 10 days of your scheduled CCDOC in-person visit, you will not be allowed to enter CCDOC.
If you are NOT fully vaccinated (defined as 14-90 days since receiving all doses of a COVID-19 vaccine), the following guidelines also apply:
- If you have been in close contact (direct physical contact, or within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more) with an individual with COVID-19 within 10 days of your scheduled CCDOC in-person visit (or within 7 days if you test negative no earlier than 5 days after close contact), please do not come to the CCDOC. If you have returned from a state covered by the City of Chicago’s travel order in the last 10 days of scheduled CCDOC in-person visit, you will not be allowed to enter CCDOC unless you test negative for COVID-19 no more than 72 hours before arriving in Chicago.
