Danville Correctional Center was off limits to visitors Monday because of illness among the inmates.

Testing shows the outbreak is a respiratory virus -- not influenza.

Seventy-one inmates have been infected, including eight new cases on Saturday.

Various parts of the prison remained in different modes of lockdown Monday to prevent the illness from spreading.

The virus is said to be highly contagious.
