Stateville Correctional Center Locked Down After Guards Call in Sick
The movement of inmates was limited for most of Friday at the Stateville Correctional Center in suburban Chicago. Nearly 60 employees failed to turn up to work, an occurrence that Illinois Department of Corrections spokeswoman Stacey Solano called "unusual."
It came a week after more than 100 Stateville prisoners were reportedly bed-ridden by norovirus, a highly contagious flu. The (Bloomington) Pantagraph said it also took place a day after hundreds of correctional officers and state retirees rallied in Springfield against possible cuts to their pensions.
