using shared or outdoor spaces, they must at all times as reasonably as
possible maintain social distancing of at least six feet from any other person
when they are outside their residence. All persons may leave their
residences only for Essential Activities, or to provide or perform Essential
Governmental Functions, or to operate Essential Business, all as defined in

All businesses operating within Chambers County, except Essential
Businesses as defined below in Section 2, are required to cease all activities
