AREA SHERIFFS SAY THEY WON'T ENFORCE MASK MANDATES

(Whitewater Valley)--With a statewide mask mandate already in effect in Ohio and going into effect on Monday in Indiana, some local law enforcement agencies are telling residents not to call with mask complaints.  In Darke County, the sheriff’s department has posted on its Facebook page, "We are not the mask police.  Don’t call 911 to report someone not wearing a mask."  And, in Fayette County, Sheriff Joey Laughlin has posted "I’ll keep this simple.  The sheriff’s department is not going to arrest you for not wearing a mask."  Sheriffs in Franklin and Butler County have issued similar statements.  Richmond Police and the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department have not released enforcement statements.
