DESIGNATION AS CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE SUPPLIER
STATEMENT OF ASSURANCE
On March 19, 2020, CISA listed ESSENTIAL CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE WORKERS DURING COVID-19 RESPONSE to help state and local 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. This list includes several segments that Graco’s business operations support. Those segments include Critical Manufacturing, Healthcare and Public Health, Food and Agriculture, Water and Waste Water Systems, Information Technology, Energy, Transportation, and Chemical sectors.
The complete list is available at https://www.cisa.gov/identifying-critical-infrastructure-during-covid-19. The list is explicitly designed to inform critical infrastructure community decision-making to determine the sectors, sub-sectors, segments, or critical functions that should continue normal operations, approximately modified to account for Centers for Disease Control (CDC) workforce and customer protection guidance. This CISA framework has been adopted by many states in implementing shelter-in-place and similar orders that require non-essential, non-critical infrastructure business to suspend operations.
Because BC Group International, Inc. supplies the Critical Infrastructure Workforce recognized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security per the above CISA guidance, we anticipate remaining open and continuing our manufacturing, service and supply operations during the COVID-19 response period.
This assurance is subject to change without notice and may be revoked as new restrictions or limitations are ordered, authorized or adopted by executive, legislative or judicial bodies.
