Monterey has ordered that all residents shelter in place starting Tuesday at midnight and going through April 7, 2020.

The order comes as the county confirms their first two cases of COVID-19 and an increasing number of cases across the state.

“Temporarily making these drastic changes to our lives and routines maybe frustrating, but it is critical to slowing the spread of this virus,” says Dr. Ed Moreno, Monterey County’s Public Health Doctor.

The order is similar to ones issued yesterday by six San Francisco Bay area counties, limiting activity, travel and business function to the most essential needs; essential businesses and operations should remain open.

The goal is to limit groups congregating together to stop the further spread the virus.

Residents can leave their home for specified reasons to make sure they have the necessities of life such as getting food and medical supplies. They are also allowed to go outside to take care of pets, go on a walk, and just get outside, so long as they do not congregate in a group and maintain at least six feet of distance between themselves and other people.
