Several Illinois correctional facilities are on partial lock-down after dozens of inmates have come down with the flu.  Officials at both Taylorville and Lincoln prisons say they are isolating sick inmates as the H1N1 bug makes its rounds.

Illinois Department of Corrections officials say workers are disinfecting the facilities several times a day and are limiting visitors.  All inmates are offered a flu shot when they are processed into the lockups.
