On Governor Newsom’s Stay at Home Order
Statement from the Sheriff
On November 19, the Inyo County Sheriff’s Office learned that Governor Newsom would be issuing a “Limited Stay at Home Order” (curfew) to take effect Saturday, November 21, at 10 PM. It has been the position of the Sheriff to educate citizens and visitors alike of the severity of COVID-19. Further, I encourage all to take the necessary steps to protect the elderly and those susceptible to the virus.
Although the curfew doesn’t apply to Inyo County based on our tier placement at this time, if and when Inyo County gets moved into the Purple Tier, the Sheriff’s Office will not be responding to calls for service regarding gatherings, curfew violations, or masking calls. I need to keep our limited personnel available for emergency calls for service.
Please do your part to slow the spread; practice social distancing, wash hands with soap and water, and wear a mask.
Jeff Hollowell, Sheriff, Inyo County, November 20, 2020
