OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma Department of Corrections announced Wednesday it is suspending visitation across all state-run facilities.

The agency initially scaled-back a visitation model this summer when infections decreased across the state, according to ODOC officials. However, the agency said it recently declared numerous facilities “hot spots” for COVID-19, which led to suspending visitation again.

In the lieu of visitation, officials said all inmates are provided two free 10-minute calls each week.

Officials said they will resume visitation as soon as possible.
