Benton County now the first Lake community to issue a “Stay at Home” order…

It requires all individuals residing in Benton County to remain at home, unless leaving to provide or receive essential services.

That includes medical care, getting supplies and engaging in outdoor activity while respecting required social distancing guidelines.

Violating the order will result in fines or possible imprisonment.

The order is effective immediately and will last until April 30th, unless extended.

Following the County, the city of Warsaw has since issued their own state at home order.

Both orders are seen below:
