Executive Order 3 24 20 copy

Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings has issued a stay-at-home order that goes into effect Thursday, March 26, at 11 p.m. The order instructs “ all non-essential retail and commercial businesses to close and all residents to stay home from non-essential travel.”


The good news is that restaurants are considered essential businesses and traveling to pickup your takeout order is considered essential travel.

You may also be glad to know that your favorite laundromat is an essential business and you having clean clothes is an essential, nay, necessary thing.

County spokeswoman Kelly Finkelstein sent a link to a list of FAQs with details about other businesses and how the order will be enforced.
