They’re asking their residents to comply with the order.

Violators could face severe penalties including a misdemeanor.

Cleveland Police Public Information Officer Evie West told us “We have the choice of either issuing a citation or an arrest but those are extreme cases. We obviously have been issuing warnings to people and I think there is a lot of people that aren’t real sure of what they can do. I think the order is very clear.”
