DESIGNATION AS CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE SUPPLIER
On March 16th 2020 the President issued updated Coronavirus guidance for America. This Guidance states that:
“If you work in a critical infrastructure industry, as defined by the Department of Homeland security, such as healthcare services and pharmaceutical and food supply, you have a special responsibility to maintain you normal work schedule.”
On March 19th 2020, CISA listed ESSENTIAL CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE WORKERS DURING COVID-19 RESPONSE to help State and Local officials as they work to protect their communities, while ensuring continuity of functions critical to public health and safety, as well as economic and national security. This list includes “Food manufacturer employees and their supplier employees.” The complete list is available at https://www.cisa.gov/identifying-critical-infrastructure-during-covid-19. The list is explicitly designed to inform critical infrastructure community decision- making to determine the sectors, sub-sectors, segment or critical functions that should continue to normal operations, appropriately modified to account for Centers for Disease Control (CDC) workforce and customers protection guidance.
Because DeLine Box Company is a supplier of the nation’s food supply, our company and all our employees are recognized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as WORKERS ESSENTIAL CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE DURING COVID-19 RESPONSE by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Please share this letter with any customer to confirm our status as a supplier and the critical role you play in maintaining the Nation’s food supply.
David DeLine, President
