You Did It!

Automotive Sales and Leasing Listed as Essential Businesses by the Department of Homeland Security

April 17, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) revised its guidance to include automotive sales and leasing as essential businesses. Together we stood with over 5,000 dealers nationwide who petitioned DHS to #AllowSafeAutoSales.  

Like you, we believe automotive sales are critically important to ensuring the success of our country’s infrastructure, whether for first responders, medical personnel, grocery and pharmacy workers, or individuals needing to engage in essential travel as they perform the vital tasks needed to maintain daily life during this pandemic. Our industry has the digital retail technology to connect with customers virtually and conduct sales digitally or through one-on-one appointments while abiding by all social distancing guidelines in place to ensure the safety and health of our communities.

Thank You For supporting #AllowSafeAutoSales

And contact your elected officials to inform CISA of the critical role automotive sales and leasing plays during this uncertain time. If your have not done so yet, please also petition the Department of Homeland security below.
