DHS has issued guidance on Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers.
The list of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers provides guidance to state and local jurisdictions and the private sector in considering how to manage and continue access and re-entry for essential workers during periods when access restrictions are in-effect by public health authorities and other executive branch authorities related to quarantines, social-distancing, isolation, and/or shelter-in-place.
Under the title: TRANSPORTATION AND LOGISTICS is listed “Maritime transportation workers – port workers, mariners, equipment operators”.
LAMA believes vessel agents are included in this category, specifically under ‘port workers’.
LAMA will continue to monitor this issue and provide updates.
NOTE: THERE ARE NO TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS IN PLACE IN LOUISIANA AT THIS TIME.
