However, one thing you should know is that plumbing companies are considered essential businesses. That means Carter Quality Plumbing is still here for you.

Why Plumbing Companies Are Considered Essential Businesses

As stay-at-home orders became more common across the country in March, the White House was forced to make a recommendation on what businesses should and shouldn’t stay open. Ultimately, their ruling came down to fields that are considered part of the United States’ “essential critical infrastructure workforce.” This includes law enforcement officials, medical professionals, as well as individuals in jobs that are necessary for maintaining public health and safety.

In an official declaration from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, plumbers are listed as part of America’s essential critical infrastructure workforce. Under the “Public Works” sector, the CISA specifically includes, “Workers such as plumbers, electricians, exterminators, and other service providers,” stating that individuals in these positions are, “are necessary to maintaining the safety, sanitation, and essential operation of residences.”
