What Businesses Should Know
Businesses are not required to close

Employees are not being impacted
    • The curfew “shall not apply to persons lawfully on the streets for employment, health, safety purposes.”  This is inclusive of medical personnel in the performance of their respective duties.
No special identification needed; no checkpoints
    • Individuals should not be concerned with traveling to and from work or with having any special identification. In similar fashion as with the “Safer at Home” order, MPD officers will not be stopping cars and setting up checkpoints to ask questions.
