States, cities and counties locking down

Mar 22, 2020

In efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19, shelter-at-home and stay-at-home orders defining “essential services” have been issued by the governors and mayors in many states including California, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Illinois, and Oregon. City mayors and county executives across the United States are also executing orders that mandate the closure of non-essential businesses. Essential businesses exempt from these executive orders typically include hospitals and healthcare facilities, grocery stores, banks and financial institutions, gas stations, pharmacies, and other critical infrastructure sectors as identified in Presidential Policy Directive 21, which include communications, critical manufacturing, energy, and transportation among others.

Members of Waller’s Government Relations practice are monitoring developments and their impact on commercial activities in real time. For additional information, contact James Weaver or Nicole Watson at (615) 244-6380.
