How will interstate employees get to work?

    The COVID-19 pandemic is forcing borders to close, so how will employees who are commuting across the borders to work be allowed to cross?

    ACAPMA CEO Mark McKenzie says, “The advice coming out of the highest levels at the moment is that the border crossing restrictions will not apply to workers who have to commute across borders in order to attend work.”

    “It is understood that the State governments are working with the police and other authorities to implement processes to streamline border crossing for workers who are working in sensitive industries, including those working for fuel retail and wholesale businesses. What this streamlined process will look like is unclear at this time, however, announcements are anticipated soon.”
