The hours of availability for video visits are as follows: 8:00 AM – 11:00AM; 1:00PM – 4:00PM; and 6:00PM – 9:00PM.  Visits are 30 minutes in duration; however, an additional 30 minutes can be requested if there is no one scheduled at the same kiosk immediately after the conclusion of the initial video visit.
