The Georgia Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association (GFVGA) wants Ag workers protected during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. As vaccinations continue to be administered across the country, the GFVGA is emphasizing the importance of essential Ag workers.
This includes family, full-time employees and seasonal employees comprised of domestic, migrant and H-2A employees.
GFVGA is administering a survey that will help inform local Georgia health districts about the essential Ag worker presence they will have during the upcoming spring season.
The deadline to complete the survey is Friday.
The GFVGA wants vaccines available at the earliest possible date and needs help from producers and industry leaders.
Most of the decisions about how the vaccinations will be distributed will be made at the local level by the Georgia health department staff and district director as well as local hospitals and pharmacies.
Participation in this brief survey is critical. For more information, contact the GFVGA office at (706) 845-8200.
