"• Workers supporting the operation of firearm or ammunition product manufacturers, retailers, importers, distributors, and shooting ranges."

Interesting, in the article it uses an example, what if you’re a handyman and fixes dishwashers and air conditioners.
Should have read, if you are a handyman and fixes air conditioners, you are committing a 3rd degree felony in Florida.

Police, fire, EMT, stores that sell food
Up here, NH all restaurants can be open for food to go only
that's about it
all state liquor stores, of course
we have been on this footing for a few weeks
good luck

to every business owner their business is essential … think about it

times have changed...we're all hunkering down to stay safe

I know that you're trying to help the uninformed...but I say force them to think this through themselves

I'm sure every 2nd grade teacher said to all of us more than once "put your thinking cap on and think about it"

it's the laziness and the apathy of a small minority about dealing with Covid-19 that is disturbing to many of us

okay...my rant is over....again thanks for sharing

Here is the executive order for Stay at Home. At the end is a list of essential businesses.

Default New Executive Order

From what I read, if I understand correctly, the new order is identical to what it was before except it now says it is ok to do everything you did before including golf, Tennis?, Pickle ball?
All recreational, excuse me, exercise is ok as long as you keep your 6' distance. List of essential businesses basically includes everything, beaches are ok.
There really is no stay at home order, am I correct?

"What businesses are considered essential?"
That's easy. Any business that I need for something essential. Food, liquor, fun times.

If places of worship are essential then why not the bars be open?
