MADISON, WI-- Wisconsin Department of Corrections (DOC) officials have suspended all visits to correctional institutions throughout the state due to growing concerns with COVID-19.

"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 into facilities", according to the Department of Corrections Institutions.

The DOC said professional visits will continue, but they will make accommodations for phone calls and video conferences, or non-contact visits whenever possible.
