Sheriff Magrini said many of the stores sell other items necessary for a rural lifestyle.

"Many of these stores sell other items, such as non-gun personal defense tools, outdoor essentials, wild game meat preparation and processing supplies, and safety equipment," Magrini said.

He asks that these stores practice social distancing and follow all guidelines issued by the CDC and local public health department.
