Jail suspends inmate visitation

This morning, the Lexington Division of Community Corrections suspended all inmate visitation.

“We are erring on the side of caution in response to the COVID-19 virus,” Mayor Linda Gorton said. Visitation will be reinstated as soon as possible.

In addition, volunteer-run programs at the jail have been suspended.

Jail officials have, and will continue, to sanitize the facility as a precaution, as well.
