This week, the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued Version 3.1 of its Guidance on the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce. For the most part, CISA’s Guidance 3.1 did not change from Version 3.0 as it relates to construction. However, CISA added a few construction-related services to “Essential Critical Infrastructure”:
- “Workers who support the construction and maintenance of electric vehicle charging stations.”
- “Engineers performing or supporting safety inspections.”
- Workers supporting “the sale, transportation, and installation of manufactured homes.”
- “Workers in retail and non-retail businesses—and necessary merchant wholesalers and distributors—necessary to provide access to hardware and building materials …”
