SAVANNAH, Ga. (WNCN) – Police in Savannah, Georgia, have come up with an interesting away to enforce social distancing while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Police there are now using five drones to make sure people are following social distancing rules throughout the city.
The drones fly 100 feet in the air and use pre-recorded messages when people are spotted violating the rules.
Officers say they follow federal aviation guidelines and aren’t flying in prohibited locations.
