El Paso is under a “Stay Home/Work Safe” order until further notice to help combat the spread of COVID-19.

The directive, in its most basic form, means residents must stay at home and/or work from home with the exception of those who work in an exempted business and/or to conduct essential activities.

The order, however, can be a bit broad in some sections and questions about what activities and businesses are considered essential are being raised. In fact, numerous listeners have reached out to 93.1 KISS-FM about the legitimacy of their workplace continuing to operate.

Here is how to report non-compliance

Those found violating it could face a fine of up to $1,000.00, or do up to 180 days in jail.

Use one of these 4 options if you feel the company you work for is straight up not obeying the directive or interpreting it in such as way as to create its own loophole, or you believe a neighbor or organization is clearly not following the order.
