After careful review of the current status of the COVID-19 epidemic, the Cumberland County Office of the District Attorney declares that only the most egregious violations of the COVID-19 restrictions will be investigated and potentially prosecuted. Such egregious violations are those which pose a severe and immediate risk to public safety and health.
This has basically been the procedure in Cumberland County since I issued my policy on March 23, 2020. You will note that the procedure outlined in that policy was a civil procedure not a criminal one. To date, there have been absolutely no criminal prosecutions of any businesses or individuals in Cumberland County. This is a credit to the people of Cumberland County doing what needed to be done to fight this virus.
