Salisbury Mayor Jake Day announces new measures to contain coronavirus

SALISBURY, Md. – On Saturday, Salisbury Mayor Jake Day announced new measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the community.

Under Mayor Day’s new order commercial buildings like Target, Walmart and other places will have to monitor the number of customers coming in and out of their establishments.

He has also ordered employees to ensure the cleaning guidelines set by the CDC are followed.

All self-serve foods and product samplings in the city were ordered to also be discontinued and anyone found violating these orders could face up to 5,000 dollars in fines.

“This is serious,” said Day.

“We need to get past this as a community and the only way we can pass this as a community is by working together, cooperating and ensuring that there isn’t a flagrant violation of the law.”

The order also says that farmer’s markets must offer at least one hand washing or sanitizing station in the venue and that the different booths must be spaced accordingly to help increase social distancing.
