Lompoc Residents Asked to Stay Home
The City of Lompoc is asking residents to stay home except for essential needs following Governor Gavin Newsom’s executive order to stay at home effective Thursday, March 19. The order will stay in place until further notice.
“The California State Public Health Officer and Director of the California Department of Public Health is ordering all individuals living in the State of California to stay home or at their place of residence, except as needed to maintain continuity of operation of the federal critical infrastructure sectors, critical government services, schools, childcare, and construction, including housing construction.”
Essential services will remain open, including gas stations, pharmacies, grocery stores, farmers’ markets, food banks, convenience stores, takeout and delivery from restaurants, banks and laundry services.
More information on the governor’s order is available at: https://covid19.ca.gov/stay-home-except-for-essential-needs/
Non-compliance with the order could result in a misdemeanor violation. However, the Lompoc Police Department expects our community will willingly comply with the order. There is no community curfew in effect. Rather the stay-at-home order is in effect around the clock for all California residents.
In addition, state and county officials recommend covering your nose and mouth with a mask while out in public conducting essential business.
