2. Sanitation stations are located throughout the courthouse.

Visitation has been and will continue to be suspended at the Hall County Jail until the State Declaration is lifted or expires. Access to the jail facility is limited to essential personnel only. We understand this can be difficult for families of those incarcerated. However, we are working to mitigate the disruption of this process and assure you that inmates will be allowed to contact you through telephonic processes.
