DHS Issues Essential Workforce Guidance 

On March 19, the DHS Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) circulated a memo on Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers During Covid-19 Response. The list identifies industries, such as transportation and logistics, that are essential to the viability of critical infrastructure. The list is intended to guide jurisdictions considering COVID-19-related restrictions. The list is advisory, not a federal directive or standard.

Additionally, on March 19, IWLA and the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) sent a letter to U.S. Governors, stressing the need for third-party warehouses and distribution centers to be deemed part of the critical infrastructure and exempt from COVID-19-related restrictions starting to take effect.
