Update regarding Rhode Island Non-Critical Business closure


As you may know, Governor Gina Raimondo has ordered the closure of all Rhode Island non-critical businesses as of Monday, March 30, 2020 until April 13, 2020 unless renewed, modified, or terminated by subsequent Executive Order.

While this is happening quickly, it was not unexpected. Many of you are doing work that is determined to be essential during this time. This includes our clients working on helping the world get through this pandemic. 

With that in mind, CIC has filled out the appropriate form with the Rhode Island Department of Business Regulation to confirm our critical business status. Until we receive word from the RI government, we are going to operate as a critical business in a limited capacity. While staff is able to work, we will continue mail sorting and other minimal operations support. We will keep our center open for companies designated as critical as long as our building remains open. Our team will also support clients remotely via

If we are deemed non-critical, we will still be able to continue to receive and permit access to mail and packages at our location. 

As the situation continues to unfold, please look for our emails and visit the COVID section of our website for additional information and answers to frequently asked questions. You are always welcome to reach out to me and our COVID response team ( with any questions.
