“SAFER AT HOME”

California’s Coronavirus Response Statewide and Local April 3, 2020 Current Status

Welcome to our new pandemic-driven world, evolving daily.

On March 19, 2020, California Governor Gavin Newson issued Executive Order N-33-20 requiring all California residents until further notice to stay at home or place of residence except for those in businesses and functions deemed essential to 16 federally-designated “critical infrastructure” sectors. See, Essential Critical Infrastructure WorkersIn essence, the governor directed:

“The supply chain must continue, and Californians must have access to such necessities as food, prescriptions and health care. When people need to leave their homes or places of residence, whether to obtain or perform the functions above, or to otherwise facilitate authorized necessary activities, they should at all times practice social distancing.”

The state is constantly updating its “COVID Response – Stay Home Except for Essential Needs FAQs” for further guidance.

Many California cities and counties have implemented similar – and in many instances progressively stricter — “Safer at Home” or “Shelter in Place” orders. To our knowledge, there is as-yet no comprehensive online resource listing all of these.  As of April 3:
