Hey Maureen here. Many people have been reaching out with questions and concerns regarding the stay home order.
To answer your question we can’t indiscriminately pull people over (whether stay at home order or not). If people are driving during the duration of the order it is assumed they are complying with the restrictions as listed on the governors order.
Second I’m not sure what other jurisdictions may have in place regarding travel out of county to work. But again, the governors order list what types of work is allowable.
Last on distributing tortillas, they would have to fall under one of the categories/sections of the governors order.
We have no intent to be heavy handed during this crisis. People are already under a tremendous amount of stress and anxiety about the unknown and we don’t want to add to that if we don’t need to.
If we receive investigation calls/reports about larger than 10 people gathering. or other violations of the governors restrictions, we will look into it.
If you have any specific questions or concerns from the community, please reach out and I will try my best to get an answer.
Baskets of palms will be outside the church. Please practice social distancing and wash hands as soon as possible.
