In Australia and likely in many other parts of the world, a "stay at home order" is the equivalent to a lockdown order, necessary to restrict the movement of people who could otherwise spread the contagious virus variants of concern, such as the Deltra variant of the Covid Virus. Where 'stay at home' is sensible advice, a 'stay at home order' is implemented by the Government with various conditions on leaving the home (e.g. a permissible radius, basic necessities such as groceries and medicines, caring for someone, outdoor exercise within a certain radius, etc).
"The Premier of NSW (Gladys) issued a temporary "stay at home order" (otherwise known as a 'lockdown') as exposure sites to the Delta variant of covid seriously threatened the track record of protection/prevention measures in Australia."
