Logan County Jail taking COVID-19 precautions

The Logan County Detention Center and Sheriff’s Office are taking their precautions with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sheriff Damon Devereaux says they continue to make changes daily to their operations.

All face-to-face visitation and on-site video kiosk visitation has been suspended, along with visitation classes, including church.

A coronavirus screening process has been setup. With each person booked into the jail, the jail will attempt to quarantine each person to an individual cell until a nurse can provide a more thorough assesment.

The sheriff says if an individual tests positive for the virus they have created a “quarantine pod” with individual cells.

Devereaux added they have suspended contractual holds for municipal warrants.

Assigned trustees have been assigned to clean and sanitize common areas with additional cleaning supplies to each pod for cleaning.

The Sheriff’s Office is suspending the process of SDA gun permits and finger printing.

The patrol division continues to make calls for citizens, but are handling some calls over the phone.

A decontamination process is in place should any of the staff been diagnosed with the coronavirus.
