Wisconsin Corrections Resumes In-Person Inmate Visits

(Waupun) The Department of Corrections reports in-person visits have resumed at state prisons. They had been stopped by the pandemic. Corrections officials say the change was made because COVID infections are now trending downward in Wisconsin. There are no active positive cases of the virus in any prison and 66-percent of the prison population has been fully vaccinated. Visitors are being urged to schedule their in-person visits at least two days in advance. At Dodge Correctional, 700 inmates have had their second dose Moderna or Pfizer shot or the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. That number is at 515 at nearby Waupun Correctional, it is at 792 at Fox Lake Correctional, and 185 at John C. Burke Correctional.
