In-person visitations at the Hidalgo County jail will be suspended for an additional 30 days, the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Office announced Monday. 

Visitations were initially suspended last month due to an increase in COVID-19 cases among inmates. At that time, the county said it would reevaluate the closure after 30 days.
