SHELTER IN PLACE ORDER - What can I leave my house for?

Do not visit friends or family if there is no urgent need. 

Limit exposure. Limit the amount of time you are out of the house. If possible, only have 1 person go out.

Food and medicine

Go to the store to buy food for yourself, those in your home, and anyone else that needs help.

This includes medical supplies at a pharmacy and essential home maintenance supplies at a hardware store.

Businesses selling those items can remain open. Employees of those businesses can keep working to ensure those businesses are operating.

These include:

  • Grocery stores
  • Corner stores and convenience stores, including liquor stores that sell food
  • Farmers’ markets
  • Food banks
  • Farm and produce stands
  • Supermarkets
  • Similar food retail establishments
  • Big box stores that sell groceries and essentials

You can also travel to pick up free food for children and elderly. 

Stay 6 feet away from other people when you leave your house.

Minimize unnecessary trips

Buy normal quantities of your groceries. You will continue to be able to purchase these items whenever you need them.

Online stores and delivery

Mail and other delivery services to your home can continue to function, as can food delivery services. 

You can place more orders from online stores. Businesses that deliver goods or services directly to residences are essential businesses that may continue to operate.

Other shopping

You can shop for anything related to health care, office supplies, and hardware supplies.

Other essential businesses include:

  • Hardware stores

  • Laundromats and laundry services

  • Banks

  • Funeral homes

  • Community benefit organizations on a case-by-case basis

  • Newspapers, television, radio and other media services

  • Veterinary hospitals and clinics 

Order delivery whenever possible.

Plumbing and household services

Plumbers, electricians, and exterminators may keep working and providing their services to the public. 

You can also visit a hardware store to buy supplies for a DIY solution.
