COVID-19 Essential Farm Worker Travel Authorization
Levy County Agricultural Employers
The document linked below from Ed Jennings, Levy County Extension Director and Mark Warren, Levy County Agricultural Row Crops Agent is being provided to offer information and support for travel related activities of essential agricultural workers.
Contained in Executive Order 20-91, which establishes a “stay at home” order effective for 30 days beginning at 12:01 AM, April 3, 2020, Governor DeSantis included guidance for essential workers including farmers, ranchers, and essential agricultural support services. This inclusion provides clear and consistent provisions recognizing the critical importance of the agricultural industry to our state.
In the link is a sample travel authorization for agricultural workers provided to UF/ IFAS by FDACS.
The document is in WORD format and it is suggested that it be formatted under your company name or on company letterhead. It is also recommended that it be kept in all work vehicles or in the possession of workers traveling for work related purposes.
