What does that usually mean when the website changes? Does that mean it will be a long lockdown?

I don’t understand why they’d stop visitation just because SHU is full. It was full last weekend but they still let us visit...something else must have happened!

Two days ago my hubby said that his celly got into a fight and he thinks the guy he fought got stabbed. I'm wondering if that is what happened. The only thing is that it happened 2 days ago. So why lock them down now?

I'm feel so sorry for the lady that drove to VA.

Something did happen he said it was minor tho...he also told me in the beginning of the week that they still do get visits if the SHU is full...I'm guessing since there was an "incident" ...even tho they were LD'd for Thanksgiving,New Year's...I believe Mother's Day...I'm wondering if they take the slightest thing to be able to LD on Holidays...🤔🤔🤔

I yoga!!! Yoga is amazing...and meditation and prayer...Driving as much as I did this weekend I def went thru ALLLL the emotions...this journey is not for the faint of heart...Blessed tho that no matter what he stays in positive spirits...even tho he knew I was on the verge of tears but cldnt cry (driving in the mountains,lol) he did make me laugh even tho it was a quick call n not w the best news...just frustrates me that a holiday weekend and for those that have children or are children n were looking forward to spend the day w their father...then the prayer becomes that the "men" don't get wired up cuz they missed a visit n are LD n then get out n frustrations are high n the cycle repeats itself....they need to hire more CO's but it's my understanding there is a hiring freeze...which doesn't help the situation...

There is an hiring freeze plus a recent article stated that they are set to lay off over 50 staff members soon

There is much press coverage today about a NY Times article about the bop: "Safety Concerns Grow as Inmates Are Guarded by Teachers and Secretaries".
