No visitors allowed at county jail, again

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Those with friends and family members incarcerated in the Craighead County Detention Center will have to wait a while before they can visit them.

The sheriff’s office announced Friday that all visitations are canceled until further notice due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases.

According to the news release, the decision affects inmates in both the juvenile and adult facilities.

The decision comes nine days after the sheriff’s office reinstituted inmate visitations with a series of restrictions and requirements, including limiting the amount of time and mandatory temperature checks of all visitors.
