Are Your Business Doors Now Required to Close During COVID-19?
Every day it seems more and more orders are presented in an effort to minimize the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). You may be frantically working to ensure your business will make it through this Global Pandemic. COVID-19’s effects are widespread, not only taking its toll on those who may be directly struck by the virus’ impact but slowly crippling business operations.
Latest Regulations Set For Maryland
At eTrepid’s headquarters in Maryland, the latest regulations on businesses were released earlier today. During the release, Maryland Governor Hogan mentioned that all non-essential businesses must close effective at 5 PM, March 23, 2020.
Do You know Where You Stand?
Since this mandate has been released, we have received many questions regarding what type of businesses are considered essential and non-essential and found many business owners or executives may not know where they may fall. Therefore, we are passing this resource on to you as a guide. Please take a moment to view the list of essential businesses as defined by the federal government and see where your business may be categorized.
Whether your business is listed as an essential business or not, please know we are here to help. Your business is at the forefront of our minds. We will continue to provide you with updates as they are released, as well as resources you may be able to utilize while getting through these tough times. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have as we work through this together.
