           The aforesaid orders of the Governor shall be enforced by the Departments of Health, Defense, and the State and local police and air pollution enforcement personnel forces. Those enforcing any Governor's order shall require no further authority or warrant in executing same than the issuance of the order itself. Those authorized to enforce said orders may use such reasonable force as is required in the enforcement thereof, and may take such reasonable steps as are required to assure compliance therewith including, but without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the following:

(a) Entering any property or establishment whatsoever, commercial, industrial, or residential, believed to be violating said order (excepting single or double family homes or any dwelling unit within a multiple dwelling unit larger than a double family home) and, if a request does not produce compliance, causing compliance with said order;

(b) Stopping, detouring, rerouting, and prohibiting motor vehicle travel and traffic;

(c) Disconnecting incinerator or other types of combustion facilities;

(d) Terminating all burning activities;

(e) Closing down or restricting the use of any business, commercial, retail, manufacturing, industrial or other establishment.

Where any person authorized to enforce such an order believes or suspects that same is being violated in a single or double family residence or within the dwelling portion of a large multiple dwelling unit, said residence or dwelling portion thereof may be entered only upon obtaining a search warrant from any judge having power to issue same.
