    What does essential mean?

    Are there any differences between what is essential in different places around the country? I own a pack and ship place so I get to stay open. I'm essential. Lol I saw that Texas is keeping gun stores open. Are there any local quirks where you are?

    Her Majesty, Michelle Lujan-Grisham, Governor of New Mexico, has decreed that gun stores in New Mexico are not vital and are to be closed.

    For those who access it, here's the Facebook notice from my LGS: https://www.facebook.com/search/top/...epa=SEARCH_BOX

    In some states "BOOZE" qualifies as essential. In my area of Florida all the liquor stores are open.

    I guess pest control is essential- I saw a couple of trucks on our "closed" island today...

    Landscape companies are categorized as construction and so are open in ILLinois. Real Estate appraisers are considered essential, much to my dismay. I'm thinking of raising my fee so that I can chase some orders away and make the ones that I go out on worth the risk.

    It means whatever your county says it means. I think that's kinda crazy, I think the state should have their own guidelines to follow and counties can add to it if they wish to but there are just too many counties for every one of them to have their own mandates.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    Evidently, at least in Washington state, leaf blowing leaves out of the parking lots serving closed buildings is considered essential. Who would have thought.

    I was "just" essential.

    Today I've transcended to the lofty position of Sacrificial.

    So now I'm working on earning some chrome oak leaves on my casket.

    But hey, it's always been about making a buck....for somebody else.

    Its what ever a liberal progressive says it is. And if you don't think so you are a racist, hateful, white supremacist, sexual preditor, woman hater. You should lose your job and not be served by any business. Essentially thats it.
    Don't let that stop basic services and rights we need to live and be safe. If comrade state official says so you shut up and do it. Here's some toilet paper and vodka comrade. Now go away, we very busy with Corona beer and virus.
