If the state moves to a shelter-in-place policy, will there be flexibility or allowance for workers in non-profits (e.g., drivers for food delivery and non-emergency medical transportation, or staff who are on-site for permanent and supportive housing to help vulnerable residents?)

Workers who provide support to vulnerable populations to ensure their health and well-being including family care providers are included as essential businesses. Similarly, the Order does not apply to workers who support food, shelter, and social services, and other necessities of life for economically disadvantaged or otherwise needy individuals, such as those residing in shelters. It also does not apply to workers supporting public and private childcare establishments, licensed pre-K establishments, K- 12 schools, colleges, and universities for purposes of distance learning, or the provision of school meals, or child care for the children of essential workers across all sectors and for uniquely vulnerable children.
