IPANA Essential Businesses and COVID Vaccine Update
Statement from IPANA Regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic and Continuance of Essential Business Operations
The Industrial Packaging Alliance of North America (IPANA) members and their suppliers are manufacturers of new industrial packaging and will continue their operations during the COVID-19 pandemic as “Essential Business” under the most recent executive orders issued by various states and municipalities.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) executes the Secretary of Homeland Security’s authorities to secure critical infrastructure. Consistent with these authorities, CISA has developed, in collaboration with other federal agencies, State and local governments, and the private sector, an “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce” advisory list. This list is intended to help State, local, tribal and territorial 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.
