Providence Mayor Doug Hammers issued an Executive Order late Tuesday afternoon officially limiting the amount of customers who are allowed to shop in local stores.

According to the order, only one person per household will be allowed inside public establishments located within the city limits of Providence at a time.

In the event that a single parent must go to the store with their children, said children are required to remain within two feet of their parent at all times.

The order took effect immediately upon signing, and will remain in effect until the conclusion of the State of Emergency declared by Governor Andy Beshear on March 6, 2020.
