Governor Newsom Issues “Stay at Home” Order
In California, Governor Newsom has issued a “Stay at Home” Executive Order as of the evening of March 19, 2020. All individuals in the State of California are ordered to stay home or at their place of residence except as needed to maintain continuity of operations of the federal critical infrastructure sectors. This order will take precedence over any local orders. Additionally, we’ve prepared this letter for employers to customize and hand out to employees should they need to demonstrate to authorities that they are working in a critical infrastructure sector.
APG Requests Freeze on Pending Regulations
With the government operating under social distancing and shelter in place orders, it has become difficult to effectively engage with agency officials on proposed regulations. In light of this, American Pistachio Growers, along with a coalition of other agriculture commodity organizations, submitted a letter to Governor Newsome requesting an Executive Order directing State agencies to temporarily halt regulatory proceedings.
