- Gas stations
- Grocery stores, farmers markets, food banks, convenience stores, and take-out/delivery restaurants
State & local government—including law enforcement and government services.
What’s closed during this #StayAtHome order? Examples include:
- Dine-in restaurants
- Bars and nightclubs
- Entertainment venues
- Public events and gatherings
- Convention Centers

Governor Newsom also activated 500 National Guard members to offer humanitarian assistance to our California Food Banks, as they face volunteer shortages due to COVID-19. If you can help, visit: http://cafoodbanks.org.
Please abide by the #StayAtHome order. Our public health depends on it.
