QUINCY (WGEM) — Adams County and Quincy officials released a statement Monday afternoon detailing their response to local businesses that violate the governor's stay-at-home order.
The statement came from the offices of the Adams County Board Chairman, Adams County State’s Attorney, Adams County Health Department, Adams County Sheriff, Adams County Emergency Management, City of Quincy Mayor, and the Quincy Police Department.
Officials stated that law enforcement will be the contact points for both the City and the County.
There will be a two-step response to violations of the stay-at-home order.
The statement said a police agency will respond when a complaint is received. If the business is in violation, a warning will be issued. The officer will explain to the business why they should not be open.
The statement said upon a second violation, the agency will forward complaints and reports to the appropriate state agency.
This statement came following the reopening of a Quincy bar on Monday Morning.
Judy Huff owner of The Scoreboard at 234 South 8th St. in Quincy opened the bar and restaurant at 10 a.m. on Monday.
Huff said her business had reached a point that she either needed to reopen now or face going out of business. She said it was a financial decision.
