Public Health Orders
The Critical Business Self Certification Document is an opportunity for critical businesses to identify, declare and communicate to law enforcement which employees are exempt from the state stay at home orders. The use of this document is strictly voluntary and is not a requirement of any state order. It was created to simply assist both critical businesses and law enforcement to comply with all current executive and public health orders.
