As we are in the third week of Gov. Cooper’s Stay-at-Home order, Moore County Sheriff Ronnie Field provided an update Monday regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sheriff Fields said Moore County residents are following the order.

“Here at the Sheriff’s Office, I have seen daily what the people of Moore County are doing,” said Fields. “Traffic is down, people are staying home, and essential travel is just that, essential.  The term “social distancing” now is an everyday phrase.  Without your dedicated efforts, the number of confirmed cases of this virus would be so much higher.”

Fields said residents need to keep following social distancing guidelines and continue to follow health experts’ recommendations.

“But there’s still more to do,” said Fields.  We’re not out of the woods yet.  We must continue to follow all the CDC guidelines until we rid ourselves of this silent killer.  Together, we have been making a difference and we will continue to do so.”

Fields is urging residents to safely check on high-risk neighbors while practicing social distancing.

“I ask that we continue to be our brother’s keeper,” he added.  “It’s so important, now more than ever, that we care for one another.  Let’s lend that helping hand to all those in need.”

The sheriff’s office is contact with Moore County leaders via conference calls to “plan and prepare for the next steps in our fight against this virus.”

Fields asked everyone to remember all the frontline workers during these uncertain times.

“Lastly, I ask that you remember in your prayers all the doctors, nurses, medical professionals, police officers, and EMS personnel who are sacrificing so much during this perilous time to help and heal America,” said Fields.  They need our prayers.  Their efforts are heroic.”

Moore County has 84 cases with two deaths.
