The Department of Public Safety (DPS) has cancelled visitations at Oahu Community Correctional Center (OCCC) and Hawaii Community Correctional Center (HCCC) for Saturday.
All other facilities are conducting visits.
A spokesperson says staffing shortages contributed to the cancellation.
Oftentimes, DPS does not know that a closure is happening until that morning.
DPS says it is now pushing out email alerts to help notify those who may be planning on coming to the facility.
Alerts are also being put out through Facebook and Twitter.
