Functioning critical infrastructure is imperative during the response to the COVID-19 emergency for both public health and safety as well as community well-being. Certain critical infrastructure industries have a special responsibility in these times to continue operations. Therefore, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has developed an initial list of “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers” 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 is advisory in nature. It is not, nor should it be considered to be, a federal directive or standard in and of itself.
