Governor Gavin Newsom and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) today announced a limited Stay at Home Order in which non-essential businesses and personal gatherings are prohibited between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. The order will take effect at 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 21 and remain in effect until 5:00 a.m. on December 21.

This is the same as the March Stay at Home Order but applied only between 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. and only in purple tier counties that are seeing the highest rates of positive cases and hospitalizations.

Agricultural employees working between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. for WG member operations in purple tier counties will need to carry a letter confirming they are essential workers. The following template letter can be used: Essential Worker Template Letter (English and Spanish).
