The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA) has released 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.

CISA states that it recognizes that State, local, tribal, and territorial governments are ultimately in charge of implementing and executing response activities in communities under their jurisdiction, while the Federal Government is in a supporting role.

Because CISA states further that “this list is advisory in nature, and is not, nor should it be considered to be, a federal directive or standard in and of itself,” fuel ethanol facilities may want to discuss response activities with their state and local governments to determine if workers in their facilities would be considered “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers” in a case of community restriction, access management, social distancing, or closure orders/directives.
