Guidance on the Essential Workforce

The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has developed—in collaboration with other federal agencies, state/local governments, and the private sector—an “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce” advisory list. This list is advisory in nature. It is not, nor should it be considered, a federal directive or standard.

Here’s a link to their guidance.

In addition, Curi has developed a letter template for medical workers in jurisdictions with stay-at-home orders to use as documentation when traveling to and from work. The template is available here.


All Curi recommendations are based on current CDC criteria at the time of publication. CDC guidance for SARS-CoV-2 infection may, or may not, be adopted by state and local health departments to respond to rapidly changing local circumstances. Providers should always check with their local health department to see if the CDC’s guidance on any given topic has been modified (particularly if more restrictive) from the CDC’s recommended guidelines. Follow this link for contact information to your state/local health department. If local recommendations vary from those of the CDC, and you are unsure what recommendations to follow, then it is safer to follow the more restrictive guidelines/recommendations.
