The leaders of D.C., Maryland, and Virginia all issued stay-at-home orders on Monday, further emphasizing to residents the importance of remaining homebound except to partake in “essential activities,” including purchasing groceries and prescriptions, exercising outside with proper spacing, and traveling to and from workplaces deemed “essential.”
WANADA encourages all our member dealers and suppliers who are allowed to remain open under the current laws of the region to still take tremendous care to do everything they can to make their workplaces as safe as possible for customers and employees. We have communicated to our members the importance of following all pertinent local, state, and federal guidelines in their jurisdiction of operation, and to meticulously document all efforts to comply with them in the workplace.
For employees who are continuing to perform essential work at essential businesses, WANADA has provided links to boilerplate letters that workers should keep in their cars, should they be stopped by law enforcement on their way to their workplace. Please view the Virginia letter at this link, and the Maryland letter here.Download Bulletin PDF
