Yesterday evening, California Governor Gavin Newsom issued an order for all Californians to "stay home" as a means to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (also known as COVID-19.) The order was effective immediately, and is attached to this post.In addition to directing everyone to stay at home, the order also named 16 specific critical infrastructure sectors where people should continue to work, because of the importance these sectors have to the health and well-being of California. These sectors include government and public safety, food manufacturing and distribution, medical services, grocery stores, convenience stores, take-out and delivery restaurants, utilities, gas stations, banks, laundry services, and pharmacies.The order will remain in place until further notice.The safety of Orange residents and businesses is our highest priority.
