SAF is working hard to provide you with the most up-to-date information on how your state is handling COVID 19-related issues such as unemployment, aid, essential business information and re-opening guidelines. Decisions at the state and local level regarding directives on closures and re-opening strategies s are being made very quickly, with little notice. Provisions for requesting exemptions vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. SAF has compiled tips for requesting a waiver or exemption, as well as examples of successful exemption letters and campaigns. In the event that you are unable to locate the resources you need under your listed state (below), SAF suggests you visit your state government page for further information. Your government page can be found by yourstatename.gov or yourstateabbreviation.gov.
