Sheltering in place is a more stringent form of social distancing.

Sheltering in place means: Stay home and only go out for “essential activities,” to work for an “essential business,” or for “essential travel” as those terms are defined in the Order.

Social distancing means: Stay 6 feet or more away from others and do not attend or participate in public or private gatherings.
