Guidance on the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce

Updated: Jul 9, 2020

Ensuring Community and National Resilience in COVID-19 Response

Version 3.1 (May 19, 2020)

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) released version 3.1 of their "Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers During Covid-19 Response" guidance document earlier this afternoon. As highlighted in previous daily blasts, this document is intended to help state and local officials identify workers who conduct a "range of operations and services that are typically essential to continued critical infrastructure viability, including staffing operations centers, maintaining and repairing critical infrastructure, operating call centers, working construction, and performing operational functions." This document also "includes workers who support crucial supply chains and enable functions for critical infrastructure. The industries they support represent, but are not limited to, medical and healthcare, telecommunications, information technology systems, defense, food and agriculture, transportation and logistics, energy, water and wastewater, law enforcement, and public works."

Today's update provides clarity around many individual worker categories and updated language to better reflect terminology used in food and agriculture industries.
