**Due to the Public Health Emergency (COVID-19), the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Corrections Bureau has suspended friends and family from entering the Visitation Center located at 2501 Ortiz Ave. Fort Myers, FL. 33905.  All visits will need to be conducted via remote visitation at this time.  You will need to register (if you have not done so already) this feature by going to the website: www.gtlvisitme.com  and clicking on the “register now” tab at the bottom of the page.  Once there you will put in the country, state, and facility (Lee County).  We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.**
