PLNA’s responsibility is to advocate for its members and to provide clarification of the state laws and directives.

Click on your business type below for the latest information on your sector of the industry operation status under the Governor's directives:

Any decision to continue operating is at the sole discretion of the business owner. Remember the goal of the Governor’s directive – to minimize the spread of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 in our communities. Please make your business decision based on what is best for your employee's, customer's and supplier's health.



PLNA is interested in knowing what impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had on your business from business closures, reduced economic activity and mitigation efforts.
PLNA will use this information in advocating for our member companies with local, state and federal policy-makers. 
We estimate that it will take between five and ten minutes to complete the survey. This survey will remain open until 5:00 pm Friday May 22, 2020.
Thank you for responding to this survey.



PLNA is working with its national counterparts, AmericanHort, National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP), and Nursery and Landscape Association Executives (NLAE), to provide you with the best resources for your green business in relation to operating during the COVID19 pandemic.

Below are FREE webinars, links and downloadable fact sheets/posters for your business. Listings will be updated as new information comes available.
