Dear Blade Runners Clients:

8. Although business operations offering professional rather than retail services may remain open, they should utilize teleworking as much as possible.  Where telework is not feasible, such business must adhere to social distancing recommendations, enhanced sanitizing on common surfaces, and apply the relevant work place guidance fro state and federal authorities.  

Homeland Security interpretation:
