What Is a California Essential Business?
On March 19, 2020, Executive Order N-33-20 directed all residents to stay home except for those operations that are deemed critical for the well-being of California residents. During this second December 2020 lockdown, the essential business order is followed in most counties, including Orange County.
Businesses considered nonessential by the government, such as hair salons, gyms, and outdoor restaurant seating, must remain closed. This order also urges individuals to only perform their essential activities outside, such as grocery shopping, filling gas, and, if they wish, performing outdoor exercise.
This mandate is due to the latest influx of new coronavirus cases, where regions where ICU capacity drops below 15% enforce the stay-at-home order. The State Public Health Officer has designated a list of the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers so that the state can continue its functions, such as economic and national security.
Are Courier and Logistics Services Essential In California?
Delivery services are essential throughout the United States, and California government authorities are recognizing courier and logistics as such. According to the Essential Workforce list, “logistics operations for essential sectors, wholesale and retail sale, including warehousing … storing, packaging…” as well as “postal, parcel, courier, last-mile delivery, and shipping workers, companies who accept, process, transport, and deliver information and goods” are crucial to California’s functioning.
