Synopsis: 
With the recent orders from the Mendocino County Health Officer, I realize there will be several questions and concerns regarding enforcement of these orders. 

The Sheriff's Office remains dedicated to providing the highest level of service to the public. 

The Mendocino County Health Officer has implemented these orders to comply with the directions and guidelines being distributed by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Mendocino County Department of Public Health.

As I have said before, enforcement is more often than not education. 

Our county has historically done the right thing for our families, neighbors and persons in our communities. 

We have been through a lot in the past few years with several disasters and rapidly evolving situations.  We have come out of these disasters stronger than before.  Much of this is due to the resilient nature of our communities and our willingness to help our neighbors.
   
Enforcement of these orders will be completed by law enforcement officers however discretion will allow for the spirit of the law to be factored in every contact.
 
I am encouraging all persons to review the Mendocino County Health Officer’s Orders in their entirety.  Many questions and concerns will be answered upon reading these orders.

Sheriff Matthew C. Kendall
