stay-at-home order (also known as shelter-in-place order) is an order from an authority to restrict movements of population as a mass quarantine strategy for suppressing or mitigating an epidemic or pandemic by ordering residents to stay home except for essential tasks or going to work in essential businesses. In many cases, outdoor activities are allowed. Non essential businesses are either closed or changed to be working from home. In some cases, it has been implemented as a round-the-clock curfew. Similar measures have been used around the world, but the term lockdown is used instead. Some officials have a concern that the word lockdown may send a wrong message for people to incorrectly think that it includes door-to-door searching and putting people into a quarantine similar to the Wuhan lockdown.

Your place of business should already be shut down. I'm not sure why such a place would be open.

But is venturing out to buy a scraper for your grill, or sandpaper, or potting soil of all things considered an "essential task"??

Everybody thinks it's not gonna be in my back yard until it is. We thought the same here.
Essential is changing day by day.
On the bright side...... what do you call a hooker with a runny nose??????? full

I'm for the most part a homebody anyway. I really like my house and yard so that's not bad. When the weather is nice (it's crappy now) I can put my skiff in the water (my back yard) and mess about on the bay, go fishin'
