WG has joined a coalition of 28 California agriculture associations in support of AB 93, a bill by Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia (56th AD) that prioritizes workers in the food supply industry, including field workers, for rapid testing and vaccination programs in response to COVID-19.

In a letter to Assemblymember Garcia, the coalition states: “With COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations on the rise, it is imperative we protect those that continue to serve the population of the state and nation by ensuring they are some of the first in line for the vaccine.”
