Where Can I Find Information About State And Local Ordinances And Orders?
 

States continue to issue statewide "stay at home," "shelter in place," or other lockdown-type orders. At the current time, all of these pertinent state orders permit truckstops, travel centers, and convenience stores to remain open and operational. NATSO fully expects future state orders will also permit truckstops, travel centers and convenience stores to remain open and operational. However, these businesses will remain subject to local restrictions such as maximum occupancy limitations. NATSO is providing a chart linking to current state lockdown Orders, as well as the respective Order's application to NATSO members. We continue to update this chart as new orders are issued.

Please note that NATSO is providing members with a letter template for your employees to complete and carry with them, explaining that they are expressly included in a U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Memorandum on Identification of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers During the COVID-19 Response.
