This order limits activity, travel and business functions to only the most essential needs and is intended to slow the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), protect those most vulnerable to the disease, and preserve local healthcare capacity. 

If your business falls under the 'Essential' category, you DO NOT need verification or approval from the County. Residents will NOT need to carry proof of employment with them either.
