Inmates in the state’s only prison for women, York Correctional Institution in Niantic are back in their housing unit after a temporary move to the gymnasium to make room for a shower-reconstruction project.

Andrius Banevicius, public information officer for the state Department of Correction, said Monday that there was no issue with the heating system of the prison, which houses 942 female offenders.
