Sat, Nov 14th 2020 12:10 pm

Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard recently issued a statement regarding Thanksgiving.

“I have no plans to utilize my office’s resources or deputies to break up the great tradition of Thanksgiving dinner,” he explained. “This national holiday has created longstanding family traditions that are at the heart of America, and these traditions should not be stopped or interrupted by Gov. Cuomo’s mandates.”

Howard continued, “My office will respect the sanctity of your home and traditions, and I encourage you to follow your heart and act responsibly, as well as do what best for your family.

“On behalf of everyone at the Erie County Sheriff’s Office, I want to wish you and your family a happy Thanksgiving.”

Earlier this week, most of Erie County was placed into Gov. Andrew Cuomo's micro-cluster action initiative "yellow zone."
