Default Sumter County Issues Stay-at-Home Advisory

Sumter County Officials have issued a stay-at-home advisory in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19. The advisory will remain in effect through April 30, 2020. Citizens are advised to remain indoors except for these cases listed by the Sumter County Board of Commissioners:


Health and safety: If you need to tend to the health and safety of family or household members, including pets. Some examples include seeking emergency services, getting medical supplies or prescriptions, or visiting health care professionals.

Necessary supplies and services: If you need to get essential supplies for members of your household, including your pets, and/or need to deliver supplies to others. This can include making a grocery store run, getting household consumer products, or obtaining products needed to keep households sanitized.

Outdoor activities: Exercise is advised, but only when practicing social distancing protocols provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention for COVID-19. Some good examples of individual activities include walking, running, biking, golfing, etc.

Work: If it is necessary for you to leave to get to and from work.
To care for others and religious needs: If you need to care for a family member, friend, or pet to provide spiritual support.

Additional steps of personal responsibility: It is advised that residents take additional steps that involve:

Practicing washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds after being anywhere public, or after coughing and sneezing.
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, or mouth when your hands are unwashed.
  • Avoiding contact with anyone who is sick.
  • Practicing social distancing by making sure there is at least six feet between you and other people.
  • If you are sick, stay at home.

As of noon today, Sumter county had a total of 49 confirmed cases of COVID-19. The age range is between 18 and 92 years old, with 13 people hospitalized.

Maryland, Virginia and DC have Stay-in-Place ORDERS in effect. FLORIDA is a hot spot. Gov. DeSantis, where are you??

Agreed. If you read the declaration it says it is an advisory...meaning there are are no teeth attached to it. Still a good idea though and many of us have been doing that anyway so it doesn't change much for most of us.

If we physically distance, sanitize what we touch, wash our hands, don’t touch our faces...what is left to do?

You can golf? I don't think that is staying at home.

Duh, this is exactly what we’ve been doing anyway?? Golfing and biking. Going to the store. That’s about it. County officials must be getting bored also? Feel the need to state the obvious!

Which until it becomes an order with threats of enforcement and fines will not get done any better than it is today which is inconsistently and with far too many violations.

I believe there is a stay at home advisory state wide.

He has said he won't do this. It's very difficult to enforce.
