STAY SAFE, STAY HOME
STAY HOME ORDER
In the midst of the pandemic, its important to social distance as much as possible. It is imperative to distance until the numbers of cases and deaths go down.
The governor is calling this his “Stay Safe, Stay Home” initiative. The plan recommends that state residents do the following:
- Effective at 8PM on Monday, March 23, all non-essential businesses statewide should close;
- Non-essential public community gatherings of individuals of any size for any reason should be canceled (e.g. parties, celebrations or other social events) are canceled or postponed at this time;
- If you must leave your home, do not travel in groups -groups must be limited to workers providing essential services;
- Everyone should keep at least six feet away from each other whenever possible;
- Businesses and entities that provide other essential services should implement rules that help facilitate social distancing of at least six feet;
- Individuals should limit outdoor recreational activities to non-contact and avoid activities where they come in close contact with other people;
- Individuals should limit use of public transportation to when absolutely necessary and should limit potential exposure by spacing out at least six feet from other riders;
- Sick individuals should not leave their home except to fill critical needs or to receive medical care, and only after a telehealth visit to determine if leaving the home is in the best interest of their health;
- Young people should also practice social distancing and avoid contact with vulnerable populations; and
- Use precautionary sanitizer practices such as using soap and water, hand sanitizer, or isopropyl alcohol wipes. Washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds works best.
