The term “shelter in place” means to stay in your home and not leave unless necessary for one of the designated exceptions listed in the Order.

In other words, everyone should stay home to slow the spread of the virus. You should limit your movements to essential outings.

Some reasons you would leave your home are to get food, to get a prescription, to see a doctor, to go to work if your work is essential as defined in this Order, to take your child(ren) to and from childcare if that childcare facility is authorized under this Order, and to help people you care for get the things they need to live and be healthy and safe (see more below).
