TPCA Members,
As you know, over the past several days as more information on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is being disseminated by the federal, state and local governments, there has been a push to classify industries as essential or non-essential. Those deemed as essential can continue to operate as more quarantines and restrictions are put in place. NPMA firmly believes that structural pest control is an essential industry that must continue to provide the valuable services we offer during this pandemic. To that end, we have crafted a letter which is being shared with CDC, Homeland Security, Governors, EPA, ASPCRO, AAPCO and The League of Cities.
If you’d like to customize this letter and share with your local municipalities or others feel free to do so. We also want to clarify that it is your decision to do what works best for your company, your employees, and your customers. We all want to ensure that we have the ability to continue protecting the public from pests and their associated disease and destruction.
