In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, California’s governor issued an order this evening that all citizens are to stay home except for essential needs.
“The California State Public Health Officer and Director of the California Department of Public Health is ordering all individuals living in the State of California to stay home or at their place of residence except as needed to maintain continuity of operation of the federal critical infrastructure sectors.
How long will we stay home?
This goes into effect on Thursday, March 19, 2020. The order is in place until further notice.
What can I do? What’s open?
Essential services will remain open such as:
Food: Grocery stores, farmers markets, food banks, convenience stores, take-out and delivery restaurants
Essential state and local government functions will also remain open, including law enforcement and offices that provide government programs and services.”
