Visitations to inmates at Wyoming Department of Corrections institutions has been suspended, the DOC announced Wednesday.
The department said while none of the inmates in its institutions has tested positive for coronavirus, it is taking the step to prevent the spread of the illness.
Visits between inmates and their attorneys will be restricted to non-contact or video-telephone conferences, the release said.
“As we move forward, we will continue to evaluate and monitor these restrictions on a weekly basis,” it said.
All staff, visitors, contractors and incarcerated individuals will be screened for coronavirus, it added.
