Non-essential business facilities to close except for "minimum basic operations." Grocery stores, pharmacies, healthcare offices, gas stations, hardware supply stores, banks, etc. are all deemed essential. Again, read the order for more details about this. Restaurants will continue to operate as they have been: Takeout, delivery, drive-thru only. 

Remember, the earlier these measures are taken, the more time we will have to stop the spread of COVID-19. Stay home, avoid others, wash your hands often. We're in this together.

   ·  Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds.
   ·  Use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
   ·  Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
   ·  Avoid touching your face.
