All non-essential businesses will be forced to close for 14 days, starting Monday, Nov. 16. Non-essential businesses include gyms, hair salons and spas. 

In-person dining will also be prohibited for at least 14 days. Restaurants can provide curbside pickup and delivery. 

The governor added that houses of worship will be restricted to 25% or less of their maximum capacity.

Outdoor recreational facilities must close, including swimming pools, golf courses and zoos. 

Indoor malls must close. The public health order says individual essential businesses with separate outdoor entrances may continue to operate.

The governor said she's been talking to state lawmakers about the possibility of calling a special legislative session to provide help to struggling businesses.

Following the 14-day closure, the governor said the state will move to a three-tier county-by-county system to establish reopening benchmarks.
