SASKATOON – The flu bug appears to be making the rounds at a Saskatchewan jail.
The Ministry of Corrections says as of Monday, there were 36 suspected cases of influenza A at the Saskatoon Correctional Centre.
Another case has been confirmed.
Drew Wilby, a ministry spokesman, says steps are being taken to minimize the number of inmates getting sick.
Wilby says officials have restricted inmates’ movements within the jail to contain the spread of the virus.
He also says authorities have stocked up on vaccine and medication to make sure prisoners are kept healthy. (CKOM)
