Based on the information RVIA received from Indiana state officials, RV manufacturing qualifies as essential businesses in Indiana under Gov. Eric Holcomb’s March 23 Executive Order (see top of page 8 of the Executive Order).
Although RV manufacturing qualifies as essential businesses, the intent of the executive order is to reduce the spread of the virus. When possible, Hoosiers are encouraged to stay home or work from home. The guidance encourages all businesses to consider what they can do to minimize the spread among their clients and their employees. This includes determining their company’s “minimum basic operations” (page 8, paragraph 15). Being flexible with employees, especially those most at risk is also encouraged.
Businesses must ensure social distancing, good hygiene and hand washing practices are taking place, as well as making sure sick employees stay home.
