Michael Anderson, Co-Founder and CEO of Etail Solutions, March 23, 2020

Clarity for online sellers and fulfillment organizations regarding “Essential Workforce,” as an increasing number of states implement “Safer at Home” orders to “flatten the curve” of COVID-19. Confused sellers out there right now are trying to figure out how they are going to be affected. While each state can have its own definition, many are looking to the Cyber Security and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), a department within Homeland Security for guidance.

CISA clearly states under the topic of Transportation and Logistics that “Employees of firms providing services that enable logistics operations, including cooling, storing, packaging, and distributing products for wholesale or retail sale or use” are Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce. To find out more watch our short video, there is a link at the end to CISA’s Guidance documentation. Hope this helps! Stay safe and healthy out there!
