For intrastate movement of regulated materials originating outside the quarantine area

This includes shipping, trucking, and moving firms.

From Jan. 1 through March 31: a business may move any regulated materials that originate outside of the quarantine area through the quarantine area without any restriction.

From April 1 through Dec. 31: a business may move any regulated materials that originate outside of the quarantine area through the quarantine area as long as the regulated materials are accompanied with a waybill indicating the point of origin for the items; the shipment moves directly through the quarantine area without stopping, except for refueling or due to traffic conditions, OR if the regulated materials have been stored, packed, or handled in a manner as not posing a risk of infestation; and the regulated materials have not been combined or commingled with other articles so as to lose their individual identity.
