Essential Businesses

On March 26, Governor Bullock issued a Stay At Home Directive that goes into effect at 12:01 a.m. March 28. The directive describes what businesses are considered essential. On March 19, 2020, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency, issued a Memorandum on Identification of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers During COVID-19 Response. The definition of Essential Businesses and Operations in the governor's directive is
meant to encompass the workers identified in that Memorandum.
