RE: Open for Business

To our valuable customers and suppliers,

I would like to share with you how Governor Newsom’s executive order will affect our status to remain open and working. Executive order N-33-20 states that;

To protect public health, I as State Public Health Officer and Director of the California Department of Public Health order all individuals living in the State of California to stay home or at their place of residence except as needed to maintain continuity of operations of the federal critical infrastructure sectors, as outlined at https://www.cisa.gov/identifying-critical-infrastructure-during-covid-19. In addition, and in consultation with the Director of the Governor's Office of Emergency Services, I may designate additional sectors as critical in order to protect the health and well-being of all Californians.”

“The federal government has identified 16 critical infrastructure sectors whose assets, systems, and networks, whether physical or virtual, are considered so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, economic security, public health or safety, or any combination thereof. I order that Californians working in these 16 critical infrastructure sectors may continue their work because of the importance of these sectors to Californians' health and well-being.”

We fall under the critical infrastructure sector as defined by the U.S homeland security as critical during the COVID-19 outbreak as defined at https://www.cisa.gov/identifying-critical-infrastructure-during-covid-19. The sector that we supply is Critical Manufacturing.  This sector is vitally important to the function of our government and needed infrastructure systems. It is important to understand that Executive Order N-33-20 also orders that businesses in this sector continue their work.

We will remain open during this time to support critical manufacturing. We will continue to practice all recommendations from the CDC and state and local agencies to protect our employees and their families.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Stay safe, 

Jose Pinela
