    Does anyone have further guidance on this?

    say I’m getting onions and my destination is 19 hours away to California, am I covered under the emergency declaration?

    As far as I see I would be since it’s an essential ag load

    Onion and garlic antivirus remedy for centuries. Garlic helps keep bloodthirsty CaDOT away.

    The shipper is the one to determine that. If they say it's essential for restocking you are good. Problem is, trying to convince an LEO that produce in Dec '21 is not a normal delivery, but an essential restock.

    We’ve also been told that liquor stores and weed dispensaries are essential... just saying.

    Never in my wildest dreams thought i would be defending weed......but considering how "on edge" shall we say a lot of groups are nowadays especially with the fear and hate mongering being pushed....... The govenment has a good case for ensureing that any goods likely to keep people calmer are essential....not that it helped seattle much.

    Just ask the shipper for something that says it’s an emergency load, I don’t think I’d just run it given there’s probably not many people using the exemption anymore since you’re supposed to report if you use it or not.

    How are we still running emergency Covi loads? This whole thing has been a load of bull-#### number one and two, during the lockdown I was running grocery and we NEVER operated under emergency declaration so I am pretty sure two + years later with no lockdown we should be done with ‘vid emergency runnin’.
     
    TheLoadOut and AModelCat Thank this.

    There has to be an emergency declaration to keep jabbing people under EUA and it also makes it easier for them to make up communistic mandates and try and get away with it.
