Nine cases were diagnosed between Dec. 26 and Jan. 9 at the low-security federal prison at Fort Dix.

Spokesman Wiley Jenkins says the cases have been found at the minimum security camp and in the eastern compound. Visiting has been called off at both facilities until at least Feb. 1, but is continuing at the west compound.

In all, the prison has more than 4,700 inmates
