Not just any other day: You are essential!

In his Friday press briefing, President Donald Trump stated that: “If you work in a critical infrastructure industry, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security, you have a special responsibility to maintain your normal work schedule.” Examples of critical infrastructure industries include: food and agriculture, the communications sector, emergency services, the financial services, defense, healthcare and the public health sector, transportation, information technology, and government just to name a few.

Mike DeWine of the “stay-at-home” executive order set to go into effect for two weeks starting March 23 at 11:59 p.m., signed by Ohio Health Director Dr. Amy Acton.

The governor referenced the list of critical infrastructure industries as being essential, and giving those involved in agriculture an exemption from the order to continue to supply consumers with the food they need.

DeWine’s use of the Department of Homeland Security guidance as well as other good models will allow farmers, processors, truckers and everyone who keeps the food shelves stocked to continue to work.

Under the Ohio Department of Health Director’s “Stay at Home Order” agriculture fits in multiple sections as an essential activity.

The Ohio Department of Health Director’s “Stay at Home Order” reminds especially those in Essential Businesses and Operations to be mindful of the directives given to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
