Authorities are trying to keep chicken pox from spreading at the Harris County jail. Dozens of inmates are under quarantine as a precaution. The quarantine ended yesterday for one cell block, but remains in place for two others for a few more weeks.

This means they cannot receive visitors and guards must wear protective masks and gloves when going near the quarantined inmates.
