City Orders & Dealerships

Many towns and cities across the state are issuing an Order or Declaration regarding essential services that may remain open. Each order or declaration must be reviewed separately as they are not identical. To date, the state has not issued a state-wide order.

If an order or declaration is in process with your local officials, please contact them immediately and request that the words "auto dealership" be included as an essential retail establishment in order for both service and sales to remain in operation.

If an order has been issued and it does not include vehicle sales, only repair, reach out to the mayor or county judge and request that a clarification or additional guidance be issued allowing "auto dealerships" to be incorporated or that auto supply includes sales at the dealership.

Stress that the dealership practices CDC Guidelines and that a motor vehicle is critical to ensure that the citizenry can obtain necessities. Reassure the officials that the dealership is practicing CDC Guidelines.

The dealership is the only business where the public and the essential businesses can rent, lease, purchase, and service their vehicle.

Below here is a sign for use at the dealership. You may want to add additional information when posting, such as the dealership's phone number and website address.
