Those that may continue operations include a wide range of businesses, from crop and animal production, to oil and gas extraction, food manufacturing, chemical manufacturing, auto parts accessories and tire stores, gas stations, grocery stores and air and truck transportation. The list also says beer, wine and liquor stores may continue operations.

Those that must close include construction companies, auto dealers, law firms and others deemed non-life-sustaining.
