Danville Prison On Low-Level Lockdown


The Illinois Department of Corrections has put part of its prison in Danville on a low-level lockdown after inmates reported flu-like symptoms.

Department spokesman Tom Shaer said Thursday afternoon that one housing unit at the Danville Correctional Center in far eastern Illinois is under a Level 4 lockdown, the lowest level lockdown.

Shaer says the lockdown is a precaution and that tests are being done at a Chicago health lab. He says results of those tests should be available on Friday.
