Winston County Supervisors Set Curfew Beginning Monday Night

The Winston County Board of Supervisors took action today to battle the spread of COVID-19 in Winston County. The Board imposed a curfew for the entire county effective at 9:00 pm on Monday.
The curfew limits all non-essential travel in the county between the hours of 9:00 pm and 6:00 am.

The curfew will remain in effect as long as the state and county are under a state of emergency or until the Board deems other action necessary.

Residents are required to remain in their homes or place of business during the curfew hours. Violators will be subject to a fine up to $500. Local law enforcement will enforce and serve citations if necessary.

Residents who must travel to and from work within the curfew hours are exempt. The curfew ordinance was passed unanimously.
