All Non-Essential Workers to Work From Home

Businesses that do not comply with the order will be subject to civil fines. “Essential” businesses are businesses that people rely on in everyday life such as grocery stores, pharmacies, convenience stores, healthcare operations, hardware stores, banks, and post offices.
