Outbreak of Illness at Cook County Jail

Cook County Jail officials have put limits on visits of certain inmates at Cook County Jail because of an outbreak of an "influenza-like illness" at the jail.  As a result, some visitation will not be allowed.  The most affected unit of the jail is Division 1 where inmates are not being allowed to move and are banned from having any visits.  Movement of inmates is also limited in Division 4 and 5.  While visits in Division 4 and 5 are not banned, they may be affected.  Anyone planning on visiting an inmate in Divisions 1, 4 and 5 is being urged to call the Cook County Sheriff at 773-674-7244 to confirm whether the inmate will be made available for a visit.
