What Do My Employees Need to Know About the Shelter-in-Place Order?

On March 30, 2020, Governor Ralph Northam issued a executive stay at home order due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The order remains in place through June 10, 2020.

As part of the order, “essential” businesses remain open. This generally includes grocery stores, convenience stores, pharmacies, hardware stores, laundromats and dry cleaners, pet shops and animal services, medical facilities, banks and other financial service providers, gas stations, auto repair shops, bike shops, wireless stores, and liquor stores.

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s office has confirmed that essential employees do not require a letter or documentation when traveling to/ from their place of business.
