GONZALES, La. (WAFB) - Deputies with the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office say they have suspended visits to the parish jail “out of an abundance of caution” until further notice as a “Covid-19 safety precaution.”

The announcement came shortly after the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Corrections (DOC) halted visitation and volunteering at all state-run prisons until at least Aug. 16.
