Sublette County Detention Center Suspends Visitation, Inmate Programs

SUBLETTE COUNTY — Starting today, January 25, all inmate programs and visitations have been suspended at the Sublette County Detention Center due to COVID-19 cases.

According to a social media post from the Sublette County Sheriff’s Office, “Effective today inmate programs and visitation are suspended this week.”

“Yesterday we had inmates test positive for COVID. We currently have the positive inmates contained to one pod and they are doing well, we would like to keep it that way, this is why these programs in shared common areas by pod are suspended,” the post states.

“We have made it two years without any COVID positive inmates and attribute the dedication of detention staff and guidance from Sublette County Public Health on being able to prevent it this long,” the post states.

These programs will be re-evaluated next week and on a weekly basis on when the center can return to normal programs and visitation.
