Homeowners across the country are stocking up on toilet paper, food, and even masks in some places, but what do you do about household emergencies you can’t take care of with a trip to the store? The good news is that the White House has deemed certain workers as “essential,” so you can still get the home services you need.

Plumbers Are Critical Infrastructure Workers

According to a decision from the Cyber and Infrastructure Security Agency (a branch of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security,) plumbers are considered part of America’s “essential critical infrastructure workforce.” Under the CISA’s ruling, medical professionals, law enforcement, and other workers whose job it is to preserve public health and safety will be allowed to continue operating during the Coronavirus pandemic. A memo released by the government administration states that this includes, “workers such as plumbers, electricians, exterminators, and other service providers who provide services that are necessary to maintaining the safety, sanitation, and essential operation of residences.”
