The Governor's "Shelter At Home" order has caused some confusion, and social media rumors, in regards to authorities supposedly making random traffic stops to ensure compliance with the order.
DeWitt County Sheriff Mike Walker says the rumors are false. Law enforcement officials are not making random stops.
In fact, Sheriff Walker encourages residents to get out of the house for a bit. However, he says to do so with proper social distancing in mind.
While authorities are not making random stops to check where you are heading, they will continue to make traffic stops and pull vehicles over for offenses.
