We are all aware of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and have heard many facts and figures. The latest are the many announcements for “stay-at-home” orders being issued. As a result, we are getting lots of questions. Many are asking what is an essential business? What documentation do employees need to get back and forth to work? Being a business owner carries a lot of responsibility and violations of these orders can result in criminal penalties. We are encouraging everyone to be informed and know
Orders allow for essential services to continue. This means that people can travel to and from work, travel to get food and pick-up necessary medicine. But, it does ban gatherings and large groups of people and means that many will be required to work from home or not work at all.
