CORNING, Calif. - Law enforcement wants to make sure only essential businesses and shops are open during this stay at home order.
The Corning Police Department Is going out and checking to make sure that businesses and people are following the state's stay at home order.
Corning Police Chief Jeremiah Fears says they've shut down several businesses, not in compliance. Such as hair salons, thrift stores, and even a tobacco shop.
People in Corning tell Action News Now, they think police should shut down non-essential businesses to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
“Some businesses should be shut down, but some businesses, like Taco Bell, they shut down the indoors so that way there won’t be people compacted in one little spot,” said Nicholas Brown of Corning.
Corning Police say they haven’t heard or seen any big gatherings in the city. But police did say, they are seeing an increase in burglaries and more reports of domestic violence cases.
