The order also says that local law enforcement will issue “verbal warnings” if guidelines are not followed.

“Both city of McMinnville and Warren County law enforcement officials will promote the use of masks in public areas and will issue verbal warnings when there is a disregard for the use of masks and social distancing guidelines established by the CDC,” the order reads.
