Federal GuidanceNew federal guidance on the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce was issued on March 28, 2020 by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). This guidance recognizes "Employees supporting personal and commercial transportation services – including taxis, delivery services, vehicle rental services, bicycle maintenance and car-sharing services, and transportation network providers." This is guidance only. However many state and local governments have adopted the CISA guidance or view it as persuasive in interpreting their own closure orders.
