FAYETTE COUNTY (WOAY) – Sheriff Mike Fridley praises locals as they seem to follow the Stay at Home order and social distancing guidelines.
Across the country, several people have faced legal consequences for gathering in large groups or not staying at home. One woman in Morgantown was arrested after allegedly throwing a party.
Sheriff Fridley says the sheriff’s office hasn’t dealt with those problems in Fayette County.
“We do things that we’re supposed to do,” said Sheriff Fridley. “We haven’t had any problems with parties and if we do, we’ll handle that. Again, under the order of the government, people can be arrested for hosting these kind of parties.”
Breaking the executive Stay at Home order could mean serious consequences.
