Business Closures Mandated by Statewide "Stay at Home" Order

Per Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-33-20, all individuals living in the State of California are ordered to stay home or at their place of residence to protect the health and well-being of all Californians and to slow the spread of COVID-19. With this Executive Order, all businesses that are not directly referenced in the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) defined critical infrastructure industries are mandated to close immediately.

If you are identified as an “Essential Critical Infrastructure Worker,” such as those who support healthcare, pharmaceutical and food supply services, you have a special responsibility to maintain your normal work schedule. The DHS list identifies workers who conduct a range of operations and services that are essential to continued critical infrastructure viability, including staffing operations centers, maintaining and repairing critical infrastructure, operating call centers, working construction, and performing management functions, among others. The industries they support represent, but are not necessarily limited to, medical and healthcare, telecommunications, information technology systems, defense, food and agriculture, transportation and logistics, energy, water and wastewater, law enforcement, and public works.
