In the past two days, pursuant to Governor Gavin Newsom’s emergency proclamation regarding COVID-19 and applicable state law, public health officials in 10 California jurisdictions issued identical “shelter in place” orders requiring residents to stay in their homes to the “maximum extent possible” subject to certain exceptions to obtain or perform vital services (as defined). Significantly, all businesses with facilities located in the counties (except certain “Essential Businesses” or those involved with “Essential Government Functions” or with “Essential Infrastructure”) are “required to cease all activities” except certain defined “Minimum Basic Operations.” Mayer Brown’s Legal Update, provides further detail.
