The Textile Rental Services Association of America (TRSA) has added several new items to its COVID-19 resources webpage for its members in the linen, uniform and facility services industry, for which it is pushing for a $114-billion relief package. TRSA president Joseph Ricci recently submitted a letter to President Donald Trump and Congress members on the issue.

TRSA’s suggestion include financial relief in the form of a $6.5 billion linen, uniform and facility services industry recovery fund; assistance in allowing businesses to defer mortgage, loan and lease obligations; loans and insurance options to aid small businesses; $5.6 billion in disaster unemployment assistance to assist industry employees; and assistance in allowing businesses to delay, defer or forgo tax obligations.

TRSA has hosted a sample letter and talking points for members of the industry to use when communicating with public officials to let them know the importance of designating the linen, uniform and facility services industry as an essential service.

Additionally, the association has been fielding questions from members of the industry and compiled them online for an easy reference guide.
