RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) -The Purcellville Police Department is currently investigating a juvenile incident that took place at a grocery store.

On March 18, an incident occurred at a Virginia grocery store involving juveniles reportedly coughing on produce, while filming themselves and posting it on social media.

Officials are asking for parental assistance in monitoring their teenagers’ activities, as well as their social media posts to avoid the increase of any further such incidents.

The Purcellville Police Department wants parents to talk with their children and explain to them why such behavior is wrong, especially given the current situation regarding the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19.)
