March 24, 2020 3:20p

(WGTD)---Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling says he's prepared to enforce Gov. Evers' coronavirus, stay-at-home order.

In a news release, Schmaling says deputies won't be pulling people over at random. But if deputies spot a crowd  or a seemingly flagrant violation, questions will be asked. Same goes for someone who says they're going to work at a business that's not supposed to be open. 

Violators could be fined up to $250 or jailed for as many as 30 days.
