Shelter-in-place or stay-at-home orders have been prevalent throughout the United States since March 2020 as state and local governments have sought to protect their citizens from the spread of the COVID-19 virus while at the same time reopen their economies in accordance with phased reopening plans. Keeping abreast of the evolving nature of these orders and plans as the spread of the virus continues to evolve is critical to the functioning of all businesses throughout the country.

Baker McKenzie has a team in place that has been advising clients real-time on these most critical issues since the first orders were enacted. We are pleased to provide this Tracker, which identifies the relevant state-wide shelter-in-place orders and their related expiration dates, as well as the applicable state-wide reopening plans, in each of the 50 United States plus Washington, D.C.

Due to the lessening of many state restrictions, we have paused updates to the US Shelter-In-Place/Reopening Tracker. For now, we are pleased to offer customized expert advice where we can support your business's reopening plans. Please call or email the team identified in the Contact Section or your regular Baker McKenzie contact if you require bespoke information and analysis.
