Warsaw Mayor Joe Thallemer is urging families to adhere to the essential travel orders and to limit the number of people heading to the store.

Speaking during Wednesday’s press conference at Warsaw City Hall, Thallemer said families should limit themselves to sending only one person to the store for groceries or other items. This comes as Governor Eric Holcomb made a similar statement earlier this week regarding essential travel.

Thallemer also mentioned several area stores such as Walmart, Aldi’s and Owen’s have all take steps to limit the number of people in the building at one time, along with protective measures for their employees.

One store, whose name was not mentioned, has toggled with the idea of doing temperature scans on customers before they enter the store.
