    What You Need to Know About the “Safer At Home” Order…Essential Business Operators.

    A “Safer at Home” Public Health Order is now in effect. It requires all “non-essential” businesses to close, such as non-essential retail and indoor shopping malls, as well as playgrounds. This is in addition to the closures of bars, clubs, and dine-in restaurants already in effect. Gatherings of 10 or more people will be strictly prohibited.

    This does not mean that you cannot leave your home. You can take a walk, go to the pharmacy, and pick up groceries.

    Examples of essential businesses that will NOT be closed under the Safer At Home order:
    grocery stores, markets
    restaurants that are doing take-out, delivery, or drive-thru service
    convenience stores
    pet supply stores
    hardware stores
    gas stations
    laundromats
    plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics
    airlines, taxis, transportation providers
    For a comprehensive list of essential businesses, read the full order here.
    Healthcare workers, government employees, transit workers, first responders, and other essential workers will remain on the job.

    Watch “Safer at Home” Announcement
    The “Safer at Home” public health order enforces a simple fact during this crisis: you are safer at home. By staying at home as much as possible you are not only protecting your own health, you are making it safer for the people we are depending on (first responders, healthcare workers, grocery and restaurant workers) to continue working.
