CBIA's CONNSTEP affiliate developed the following letter template for employees of essential businesses (as outlined in Gov. Ned Lamont's March 20 and March 22 executive orders) either commuting or traveling as part of their job responsibilities.

The template is interactive—once you download it, feel free to add your company logo (in the top left corner) and any additional details (where indicated) related to your business and covered employee(s).

While the letter's default exemption language explicitly references the manufacturing sector, non-manufacturers can check their status and find appropriate language in the guidance released by the state March 22.
