1026

BY CHIEF ADAM MELTON

DUE TO A NEWS BROADCAST AROUND NOON ON FRIDAY, IT WAS UNDERSTOOD BY MANY THAT THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR HAD AUTHORIZED THE REOPENING OF MANY BUSINESSES.

THESE WERE ONLY RECOMMENDATIONS.

THE SHELTER IN PLACE ORDER ISSUED BY GOVERNOR IVEY IS STILL IN PLACE AND ALL PERSONS AND BUSINESSES ARE STILL UNDER THOSE GUIDELINES.

OFFICERS ARE NOW GOING TO ALL OF THE BUSINESSES IN ROANOKE TO VERBALLY COMMUNICATE THIS TO THE OWNERS AND MANAGERS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING
