COVID-19, also referred to as the coronavirus, continues to dominate headlines and one police department is taking the threat very seriously. Ok, not really. Police in Kenosha, Wisconsin jokingly decided to cancel crime "Due to the growing concern over the flu, Coronavirus, and other sicknesses, the decision was made to cancel all crime in the Kenosha area. We are unsure when this ban will be lifted. We ask anyone who was planning to commit any crimes to please stay home for their safety. We will continue to monitor the situation closely. We appreciate everyone’s anticipated cooperation..."

This isn't the first time a law enforcement agency has used the coronavirus to show of their sense of humor. Back in February, a Minnesota Sheriff's Office took to Facebook to let local meth users know that their drugs could be contaminated with the virus. The post, which can be seen here, urged drug users to take their meth to the sheriff for testing.
