Essential Jobs and Critical Infrastructure Letters might be necessary for some employers to provide

As Texans come together to fight the spread of COVID-19, it is important for businesses to determine if their job sector is classified as necessary for critical infrastructure needs.  If determined necessary, a business should identify essential critical infrastructure workers to ensure continuity of functions critical to public health and safety, as well as economic and national security. In some instances, it may be necessary to provide written documentation to these workers for them to carry while in transit in the event they get stopped by law enforcement. If you are a governmental entity, medical facility, financial institution, technology or communications company, or any other business deemed critical by state and local governments, please feel free to reach out to us for guidance and assistance in those efforts.
