Its common during flu season for prisons to be on quarantine. This is what the current lockdown info says:

Partial Lockdown
Lawrence Correctional Center
Menard Correctional Center

Its also common for most prisons to go on either lockdown, full or partial or restricted movement during the Super Bowl.

Right - quarantined don't show up on the IDOC site because its usually not the entire prison but rather specific houses

The front desk told me today it would be 4-5 more days quarantine. The health office told me it was yet to be determined. Is this normal?!? Makes more sense to me to quarantine the people who are sick...

Yes its common. Prisons, esp the lower security ones with firm style housing are more susceptible. This doesnt sound like flu though its too long, but who knows. They had a major bed big problem there in late 2018. Major. Have you heard from your loved one via gtl or phone??

What is the normal procedure when people get sick in a house? To leave the sick & healthy all together until everyone gets sick? I understand the beds are probably full in sick bay but other places have set up cots in the gym in a situation like this. My l/o isnt sick (yet), so is the center just waiting for everyone to get sick in the house & then get well before they lift the quarantine? He was able to call me today but nobody is allowed out and 5-6 more people had a fever this morning so they said the quarantine is getting longer. It still makes more sense to me to separate the sick from the healthy.

What sucks about calling is that no one mans the phones past 3pm and no one at all on the weekends.

A week in and my l/os house is still in quarantine with rumors that other houses are also quarantined too. But nothing about it on the IDOC website.

This is what they did to my l/o in a different facility. Then they forgot why he was there! That began the nightmare. To make a long story short, he was (finally) able to get a letter off to me and I was able to call the health center and get him out.

Oh wow! My son was only housed there for 72 hours. However, on his record it lists that he was in seg twice in the 6+ years he's been there. However, only once for disciplinary - the other was a medical need.
