OAK PARK, Illinois (AP) — Residents are reporting businesses and neighbors as authorities worldwide work to enforce business shutdowns and stay-at-home orders meant to limit person-to-person contact amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Residents have been phoning police and municipal hotlines, raising the issues with elected officials, and shaming scofflaws on social media. Police are issuing citations to and sometimes arresting businesses and individuals who violate orders issued by government officials that are intended to slow the rate of infections that are overwhelming many hospitals.

Among businesses that have been busted are Tulsa, Oklahoma bars, a Chicago yoga studio, and a Denver gaming store.
