On March 19, 2020, California State Governor, Gavin Newsom, in response to the COVID-19 threat, issued Executive Order N-33-20, a Stay-At-Home directive, except for essential needs and specifically excepting federal critical infrastructure segments.
Flux Power is a manufacturer and distributor of advanced lithium-ion batteries that support all major logistics and transportation of critical supplies, including for COVID-19. Flux Power is an essential business because we provide energy to power equipment enabling delivery of food and essential goods during the COVID-19 crisis.
Governor Newsom’s order specifically references the following: “The federal government has identified 16 critical infrastructure sectors whose assets, systems and networks, whether physical or virtual are considered so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, economic security, public health or safety, or any combination thereof. I order that Californians working in these 16 critical infrastructure sectors may continue their work because of the importance of these sectors to California’s health and well-being.”
Among the 16 sectors that the US Department of Homeland Security has identified as critical infrastructure, and due to its supply to transport infrastructure, Flux Power fits into the Critical Manufacturing Sector.
Flux Power, as a critical supplier in the Critical Manufacturing Sector, has designated some of our employees as critical to the manufacture and distribution of our products. Some employees are unable to perform their vital work from home. Because Flux Power will continue to operate in the interest of public health and safety, some Flux Power employees will continue their current daily operations onsite.
