The Wisconsin Department of Corrections has temporarily suspended all visits to its institutions in effort to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.
This includes volunteer visits.
“We take our responsibility to protect staff and persons in our care very seriously, and out of an abundance of caution are taking actions to minimize the risk of bringing COVID-19 (Coronavirus) into facilities,” reads a statement from the DOC.
The agency says it will be working to expand other methods of communication. That includes phone calls and video visits.
