Anyone foresee any city/state actions that would make WFH mandatory or large office /floor gatherings unlawful?

You're missing the point. This law doesn't obligate employers to provide WFH access/ability

The problem with this is we assume that most employers are equipped for WFH, while there are plenty of professional jobs that are, many aren't, some of its organizational system flaws, some the nature of the work they do. Some of these issues can definitely be mitigated by the employer, but it takes time and just isnt a flip of the switch. The sad part of this are those whose hours /employment /paychecks are impacted because WFH just isnt possible, restaurants, movie theaters, store workers, teachers aides, flight attendants/gate agents, TSA, Medicial staff, etc. Unions will help with some of those, but not all.

OP I think you are not appreciating the way your responses are coming across. Your original question was whether actions had been put into place regarding WFH or large office / floor gatherings. (The "or" is key.) People replied that that prohibitions on large gatherings had been put in place, and then you effectively said "prove it" when you could do the research yourself. To spoon feed you what you could easily learn yourself, these actions are executive orders at the state and local level which are viewed as having the force of law especially when a state of emergency has been declared. The executive orders ban large gatherings and allow the government to take over hotels and other facilities as needed for the public good. So far work from home orders have come from companies, not governments, though it's not inconceivable that will happen in the near future.
