Warren County, Front Royal plan to enforce Executive Order Fifty-Three
The Warren County Commonwealth’s Attorney, Warren County Sheriff’s Office and Front Royal Police Department announced they intend to enforce Gov. Northam’s Executive Order Fifty-Three through warnings, education and collaboration with business partners to comply. According to Front Royal Chief of Police K.L. Magalis, non-compliance could result in a summons for a Class 1 misdemeanor.
Northam’s Executive Order Number Fifty-Three describes in detail businesses considered essential, non-essential, or otherwise exempt to closing with restrictions. Gatherings of more than ten people are prohibited rather than simply discouraged.
The local agencies, in the best interest of the community, are urging citizens to adhere to Northam’s executive order to combat the spread of COVID-19.
“We are calling on all of our friends and neighbors in the Town of Front Royal and Warren County to do their part in this fight. Ask yourself if you have an absolute need to run that errand or leave your safe space or if you want to leave because you are tired of being cooped up. Each time you encounter someone, you run the risk of becoming infected,” said Magalis.
