(UNDATED) - The Indiana Department of Corrections has suspended visits at state prisons because of the H1N1 human strain of the swine flu outbreak.
Elsewhere, visitors are still permitted at the Marion County jail since they use video visitation.
Lt. Jim Yetter at the Hendricks County Sheriff's department says they feel it's their obligation to create a safe environment so they've suspended public contact with the inmates.
In Lagrange County, Sheriff Terry Martin is restricting public visitation at the jail for two weeks as a precautionary measure.
