Hillsborough County adopts Safer at Home order

March 26, 2020 - The Hillsborough County Emergency Policy Group unanimously approved a Safer at Home order, designed to control the spread of Covid-19 coronavirus. The order, approved Thursday afternoon, will take effect at 10 p.m. Friday. The final measure has two key changes to one discussed on Wednesday — it was changed from a directive to an order, which law enforcement officials said would make it easier to enforce, and the word “curfew” was removed, so the order is in effect 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Hillsborough residents are asked to stay home unless they need to go out for essentials. The Hillsborough County measure came a day after Pinellas County issued its own Safer at Home order.
