OROVILLE, Calif. - Butte County Sheriff officials announce that visitation to the Butte County Jail is suspended as of Saturday, March 21 until further notice due to the confirmation of the first coronavirus case in Butte County. 

Officials say that they are unable to effectively accommodate social distancing for family members who come to the facility to visit inmates. 

Although no family members will be able to visit, officials say inmates will still be able to visit with attorneys and investigators.

The Butte County Sheriff's Office says they understand the importance of family visiting and will continue to follow Public Health guidelines and begin working on alternative ways for inmates to have contact with family members.
