Pampa police warn public about COVID-19 quarantine violations

The Pampa Police Department has received several reports of possible violations of persons under quarantine for positive COVID-19 test results. The Criminal Investigations Division is currently following up on all reported cases.

All reported cases are cases being called in or filed with our agency. This is not follow up on all social media banter and rumors.

Should any investigation bear evidence the quarantine order has been violated by anyone under said quarantine, that information will be sent to the prosecutor’s office for consideration for warrant. 

People who are under quarantine due to a positive test for COVID-19 and violate the quarantine could be subject to arrest and penalties to include, but not limited to, 6 months in jail and up to a $1000 fine.

These allegations are being taken very seriously and will be investigated thoroughly by law enforcement.
