Governors and public health officials across the country are implementing stringent measures to help contain the spread of COVID-19. This post, current as of March 27, 2020 at 8:30 a.m. (CDT), identifies the states where “stay at home” orders are effective or pending. We will update the list regularly but expect it will become outdated quickly as new announcements are made.

As of this posting, the most recent announcements affect Montana, New Hampshire and Colorado.

Generally speaking, the “stay at home” types of orders shutter all non-essential business operations, permitting employees of non-essential businesses to work from home only, with narrow exceptions. Many also specifically require citizens to remain home at all times, unless they are engaged in essential activities, such as shopping for food and basic goods, commuting to perform essential work, seeking medical attention, or participating in outdoor activities.

Note that this list does not include “stay at home” actions at the local level. Nor does it include less restrictive orders that: affect only certain businesses, like restaurants or salons; recommend but do not require people to stay home; or that apply only to certain counties within a state (as in Pennsylvania, for example). Employers should monitor news outlets and consult with counsel for details on additional orders that may apply to their operations.
