Lincoln County Sheriff Curtis Landers spoke about Governor Kate Brown’s Executive Order in a video Friday, warning enforcement actions would be taken on those in violation of the order.
“Law enforcement does not make the laws, and like all laws, some people agree with them and others don’t. However, these are in place to keep you safe and we will enforce the order to ensure your safety,” Landers said.
Landers said deputies would be issuing citations to people congregating at popular closed off destinations. Deputies will be monitoring popular areas and taking enforcement actions.
Landers said violation of the Governor’s order is a Class C misdemeanor that carries a $1,000 fine and could ultimately land violators in jail.
