Mayor Eric Garcetti announced a citywide ‘Safer At Home’ order, which shuts down all nonessential businesses due to the coronavirus.
This ‘Safer At Home’ order allows for healthcare, government and food industry employees to continue going to work, but others are being encouraged to stay home.
“All businesses, including museums, malls, retail stores, for-profit companies and nonprofit organizations must stop operations that require workers to be present in person. And no public and private gatherings of any size that would occur outside of a single home will be allowed, with clear exceptions. I want to be clear about this, that the only time you should leave your home is for essential activities and needs — to get food, care for a relative or friend or a child, get necessary healthcare, go for a walk in the neighborhood,” he said.
