No. The order indicates that, to the extent possible, child care facilities should place children in groupings of not more than 10 children such that children would remain within the same group (i.e., not switched from one group to another group), and with employees of the child care facilities only remaining with only one group of children.
No. Restaurants and bars can remain open, but they would not be able to serve food and non-alcoholic beverages to patrons that would consume food and non-alcoholic beverages within the restaurant or bar.

People generally visit grocery stores solo, as a pair, or as a family. They are spaced around the store far enough apart to maintain the 6 feet recommendation. People shopping in a grocery store is not considered a “gathering” because they are not in close proximity for more than a few moments. People passing by each other in a grocery aisle is safer than sitting in a room together for an extended period of time.
Where possible, Essential Businesses should: 1. Designate 6 ft of spacing between employees and customers 2. Make hand sanitizer, anti-microbial soap and other sanitizing products available to employees and customers 3. Have separate operating hours for vulnerable populations 4. Post information online or on the business about how best to reach the business and how services can be provided remotely
