The County will enforce social distancing guidelines inside the Patricia M. Glass Chambers for the meeting. Members of the public are strongly encouraged to watch the meeting remotely. County, law enforcement and municipal leaders from each of the County’s municipalities discussed the curfew and private property restrictions during a virtual Emergency Policy Group meeting this morning. The group agreed that the additional measures will send a clear message to Manatee County residents that social distancing orders must be taken seriously and are not to be ignored. The proposed curfew would prohibit non-essential travel (travel that is not for food, medicine, essential supplies, employment) from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., seven days a week. An effective date will be decided during tomorrow’s meeting.
