The RV Industry Association is reporting that, based on the information it has received from Indiana state officials, RV manufacturing qualifies as an essential business in the state of Indiana under Gov. Eric Holcomb's March 23 Executive Order.
The intent of the Executive Order is to reduce the spread of the virus by getting as many Hoosiers as possible to stay home and work from home. The guidance encourages all businesses to consider what they can do to minimize the spread among their clients and their employees, even if they are considered essential. This includes determining their company’s minimum basic operations” and being flexible with employees, especially those most at risk.
Businesses must ensure social distancing, good hygiene and hand washing practices are taking place for employees who are on site, as well as checks being put in place to ensure sick employees are staying home, according to the order.
