    ACC today sent a letter Tuesday to President Trump and all 50 US governors stressing the chemical sector's need to maintain operations and access critical supplies and transportation systems as extraordinary measures are undertaken to control spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

    "While many of these limitations are currently in the best interest of public health, it is essential that key industries and sectors, including the chemical manufacturing sector, are able to maintain operations throughout this challenging time," Jahn said. "Many ACC member companies have instituted telework policies to reduce the number of employees traveling to work and interacting with co-workers. However, the operation of manufacturing plants cannot be done remotely and requires the day-to-day presence of highly trained personnel. This also includes ensuring access to critical supplies and transportation systems so our industry can continue to produce and deliver essential products."

    ACC said it is coordinating with multiple federal agencies, including the Department of Transportation (DOT) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to help ensure the continuity of operations and safety of employees.

    The chemical industry is fundamental to the continued operation of multiple other sectors, including products and material needed to support infection control, good hygiene and treat those who are infected with the coronavirus in the weeks and months ahead, Jahn said. Such products include biocides, disinfectants, medical supplies, and personal protective equipment.
