California Remains Under “Stay at Home” Order
According to an order issued by California Governor Gavin Newsom, our state is under a “stay at home” order, which, according to the Office of the Governor, means all citizens are required to remain at home except for essential needs.
Essential needs include buying food, ensuring care for a relative or friend, getting necessary health care or going to a job classified as essential. Those who do go out should keep a distance of at least 6 feet from others.
