Things are not so open at the Drumheller Institution this week. Visits to the penitentiary have been suspended because of a possible influenza outbreak.
A statement says it's a precautionary measure put into place after some inmates showed symptoms associated with influenza.
The Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) is working with health authorities in order to resolve the situation as soon as possible.
The statement says CSC is committed to provide a safe and healthy environment for staff, offenders and members of the public alike. Visits will resume as soon as it's considered safe to do so.
