Conoce la lista de los negocios considerados esenciales a la Orden Ejecutiva 7H por el coronavirus en CT


El 20 de marzo de 2020, el Gobernador de Connecticut, Ned Lamont, emitió la Orden Ejecutiva 7H, que ordena a todas las empresas y entidades sin fines de lucro en el Estado de Connecticut que utilicen, en la mayor medida posible, cualquier procedimiento de teletrabajo o trabajo desde el hogar que puedan emplear de manera segura. Esa orden también ordenó que, a este 23 de marzo de 2020 a las 8 p.m., cada empresa no esencial o entidad sin fines de lucro reducirá la fuerza laboral en persona en cada ubicación comercial en un 100% de los niveles de empleo previos a la declaración de emergencia.
