West Virginia stops visitation at correctional facilities

CHARLESTON, WV (WOAY) – The Justice Administration has announced that effective today, all visitation to the state’s correctional facilities have stopped.

The decision was made because people in prison live in close proximity to others, and this would prevent the spread of illnesses.

Attorneys are encouraged to video conference their clients instead of going to prison.

So far West Virginia has tested 8 people for the coronavirus, 7 have come back negative, with 1 case still pending.
