The Order sets out an extensive list of designated COVID-19 Essential Services. The following are included among the list of essential services under Financial Services:

*Banks, financial services institutions, credit unions, insurance, payroll, regional development corporations, and accounting services.

*Professional services (such as legal and accounting services) and payroll and employee benefit services, when necessary to assist in compliance with legally mandated activities and critical sector services or where failure to provide such services during the time of the order would result in significant prejudice.

*Workers who are needed to process and maintain systems for processing financial transactions and services (e.g., payment, clearing, and settlement; wholesale funding; insurance services; and capital markets activities).

*Workers who are needed to provide consumer access to banking and lending services, including ATMs, and to move currency and payments (e.g., armored cash carriers).
