TOMORROW WHEN THE LEGISLATURE IS OPEN.

LAST WEEK WE ISSUED GUIDANCE PROHIBITING LARGE GATHERINGS OF 250 PEOPLE OR MORE.

TODAY WE ARE AMENDING THAT TO PROHIBIT GATHERINGS OF OVER 25 PEOPLE.

SUBJECT TO THIS ORDER, THESE GATHERINGS INCLUDE ALL COMMUNITY, CIVIC, LEISURE, FAITH-BASED EVENTS, SPORTING EVENTS, CONCERTS, CONVENTIONS AND SIMILAR EVENTS OR ACTIVITIES

THAT BRING TOGETHER 25 OR MORE PEOPLE.

THIS INCLUDES MENUS LIKE FITNESS CENTERS AND OTHER CLUBS.

WITH RESPECT TO RESTAURANTS, ANY RESTAURANT, BAR OR ESTABLISHMENT THAT OFFERS FOOD OR DRINK SHALL NOT PERMIT ON PREMISES CONSUMPTION.

THEY MAY CONTINUE TO OFFER FOOD FOR TAKEOUT AND DELIVERY.

THEY MUST FILE THE SOCIAL DISTANCING PROTOCOLS SET FORTH.

THIS IS EFFECTIVE TUESDAY 2020 AND SHALL REMAIN IN EFFECT THROUGH APRIL 17, 2020.

WE WANT TO BE CLEAR THAT THIS ORDER DOES NOT APPLY TO GROCERY STORES OR PHARMACIES.

THIS IS ABOUT BARS AND RESTAURANTS.

I REALIZE THESE MEASURES ARE UNPRECEDENTED.

WE ARE ASKING OUR RESIDENTS TO TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND UNDERSTAND THE RATIONALE BEHIND THIS GUIDANCE.

GROCERY STORES ARE GETTING RESTOCKED.

THE REASON WE ARE SEEING BARE SHELVES ON THE NEWS AND WHEN WE SHOP IS BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE STOCKING UP A LITTLE BIT OVERBOARD.

REMEMBER THAT IF YOU BUY TWO YEARS OF CANNED SOUP, THAT MEANS THAT YOUR NEIGHBOR MIGHT HAVE TO GO WITHOUT.

FOR RESPONSIBLE PLANNING ADVICE, VISIT OUR WEBSITE.

GIVEN THE RISK -- REVOLVING DATA AND OUT OF AN ABUNDANCE OF CAUTION, I AM ORDERING A THREE WEEK SUSPENSION OF SCHOOL OPERATIONS FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES THAT ALL PUBLIC AND

PRIVATE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS.

THIS WILL BE EFFECTIVE TUESDAY AND CONTINUES UNTIL APRIL 7.

UNLESS YOUR DISTRICT ISNT ALREADY CLOSED, SCHOOL IS ON TOMORROW BUT NOT TUESDAY.

WE UNDERSTAND THAT MANY DISTRICTS RELY ON SCHOOL BUILDINGS FOR SERVICES OUT SIDE OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS.

CLOSING DOWN SCHOOLS FOR CLASSES WILL NOT IMPACT THESE TYPES OF SERVICES AND WE WILL WORK WITH SCHOOL DISTRICTS T
