What Does It Mean If a Stay-at-Home Order Is Issued?

Communities across the US, including the Charlotte area, are issuing orders for people to stay home. This is a stricter form of social distancing to help protect you from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
It means you need to stay home and only go out for essential activities, like:
Going to the doctor, if the visit can’t be done virtually (if possible we recommend using our 24/7 virtual care options at this time)
Getting food from a grocery store or takeout at a restaurant
Picking up medications from the pharmacy
Walking, biking and jogging, as long as you’re 6 feet away from others
Helping someone else get necessary supplies
When a stay-at-home order is issued, you should only travel if you have to report to your place of work. Visit our hub for more coronavirus updates, including details about what a stay-at-home order means.
