Plumbers Declared Essential Workers by White House

The good news is that yes, plumbers are considered essential service people! In a ruling made by the Cyber and Infrastructure Security Agency – a division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security – plumbers were deemed “essential critical infrastructure workers.” The decision finds that “Workers such as plumbers, electricians, exterminators, and other service providers” are considered essential because they “provide services that are necessary to maintaining the safety, sanitation, and essential operation of residences.” What does this mean for you? It is still perfectly okay to call a plumber to come and fix a problem in your home, even during this national crisis. While it is important to take the spread of COV-19 seriously and do everything we can to flatten the curve, there are also times where it simply would not be possible to exist in our homes without the assistance of essential service providers. Thankfully, the government has declared plumbers to be among those essential service providers.
