A funeral or sick bed visit, including travel, shall not be approved for more than 12 hours in duration, except that the deputy director for correctional facilities may approve a visit up to 24 hours in duration for a prisoner required to travel more than 500 miles round trip. Funeral and sick bed visits outside the state of Michigan shall not be approved.
(5) A prisoner approved for a funeral or sick bed visit shall remain in the custody of correctional officers at all times to, from, and during the visit.
