Mnuchin statement regarding essential financial services workers
Treasury has released a statement from Secretary Mnuchin on financial services sector essential critical infrastructure workers:
- “I strongly support the Department of Homeland Security’s recent guidance identifying financial services sector workers as essential critical infrastructure workers during the COVID-19 response emergency. The guidance provides information to State and local officials, as they work to protect their communities, to ensure the continuity of functions that are critical to public health and safety, as well as economic and national security. Consistent with the President’s guidelines, ‘if you work in a critical infrastructure sector, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security, you have a special responsibility to maintain your normal work schedule.’
"The financial services sector is identified as a Critical Infrastructure Sector by the Department of Homeland Security. The Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce for the financial services sector includes workers who are needed to process (and maintain systems for processing) financial transactions and services, such as payment, clearing, and settlement services, wholesale funding, insurance services, and capital markets activities. Essential financial services workers provide consumer access to banking and lending services, including ATMs and the movement of currency (e.g., armored cash carriers). They support financial operations, including data and security operations centers. Essential workers also include key third-party providers who deliver core services."
