State police issue six warnings across Pa., one citation during stay-at-home order
State police have issued six warnings and one citation statewide for failing to comply with Gov. Tom Wolf’s stay-at-home order.
Troop J, which covers Lancaster, Chester and York counties, reported one warning and the state's only citation for the period of April 1-5, according to a news release.
Under the order, individuals must stay at home except for certain essential activities and work to provide life-sustaining business and government services during the coronavirus crisis.
A York Township woman was the first person in the state to be cited for violating the stay-at-home order during the coronavirus crisis after telling troopers she went out for a drive on March 29, state police said.
Anita Lynn Shaffer, 19, was issued the summary citation for violating the state’s Disease Control and Prevention Act of 1955. She said she plans to fight the citation.
