The Safer At Home Order is effective at 8 AM on March 25, 2020, until 8 AM on April 24, 2020, or until an overrding order is issued.

Individuals do not need special permission to leave their homes, but they must comply with this order as to when it is allowable to leave home.

  • Get necessary services or supplies for themselves or their family or household members, such as getting food and supplies, pet food and supplies necessary for staying at home;
