OUR NEW NORMAL WEEK FIVE

 

“Safer at Home” Updated, Statewide Coronavirus Response

We are in our fifth week following Governor Newson’s March 18 order  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.

The state last updated yesterday its “COVID Response – Stay Home Except for Essential Needs FAQs” offering further guidance.

Since our initial April 3 listing, we count four more California counties joining those which have implemented similar – and in many instances progressively stricter — “Safer at Home” or “Shelter in Place” orders. To our knowledge, and as of April 17:

Thanks to our legal assistant Daniska Coronado for this compilation. There appears to be no other attempted comprehensive statewide listing readily available online.

Perhaps there is good reason for this. We cannot confirm this collection is complete or will even still be current by nightfall. As applies to your locale, please use the above links and other online resources for updates. Requirements of varying strictness continue to change frequently, municipality-by-municipality.
