Pet groomer charged, accused of defying stay-home order

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — A woman is accused of violating Gov. Jay Inslee’s COVID-19 stay-at-home order by reopening her pet grooming shop in Vancouver, Washington, in May. The Columbian reports Kelly Carroll of Battle Ground faces one count of violating an emergency order proclamation. A Vancouver defense representing Carroll entered a not-guilty plea on her behalf last week. According to an affidavit of probable cause, the case revolves around Carroll operating her business, The PetBiz, in spite of the governor’s order. The affidavit says Carroll publicized her intent to reopen and organized a May 16 rally at her shop which more than a 100 people attended.
