COVID-19 Resources | The Aluminum Association

COVID-19 Resources

As COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, continues to spread rapidly around the world and throughout the United States, the Aluminum Association is prioritizing the health and safety of our members and staff – and we are working tirelessly to ensure that aluminum producers can continue to operate as part of the critical manufacturing sector.  

The Aluminum Association has released a framework for policymakers developing economic stimulus and other programs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The document – “American Aluminum Jobs: Essential to the Nation” – calls for a number of immediate measures to support the industry during the ongoing public health crisis. Aluminum industry stakeholders can find a letter from the association here affirming the important role of aluminum as a core part of the critical manufacturing sector (as recognized by CISA). 
We are continuously compiling updates and resources to help you stay informed on this rapidly evolving situation. However, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Association team anytime with questions, issues or requests at

Industry-Wide Survey

The Aluminum Association recently launched an industry-wide survey: “Understanding the Impact of COVID-19 on the Aluminum Industry.” The survey was developed as a way of sharing best health and safety practices for the aluminum industry related to the spread of COVID-19 as well as to help participants better understand its impact on aluminum-related supply chains and end-use markets. The association plans to conduct this survey, which should take around 10 minutes to complete, every two weeks so that we can share with participants if — and how — conditions are evolving.  
You can find a summary of the fourth survey HERE. Participants receive a complete, detailed report.
