In New Jersey, one of America's #COVIDー19 epicenters, a national chain of pool supply stores stay open as essential.

In Kansas, a company that manufactures doors and windows is staying open as essential because, technically, hospitals use their products.

None of their employees are allowed to work from home during the pandemic. Because they're essential.
