Who Are Considered Essential Workers?

With the global spread of the Coronavirus affecting virtually everyone across the country in one way or another, adjusting to the new realities of daily life can be difficult. Making sure you have enough food and toilet paper, and even protective gear like masks is now a major concern for the average homeowner. But what do you do when you have a leaky faucet or a broken air conditioner? Is it okay to call a technician? With many Americans wondering exactly who is considered an essential service worker, our professionals at Golden Rule are here to provide the answers you need.

Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers

According to guidelines released by the Cyber Infrastructure and Security Agency (an operational component of the Department of Homeland Security,) certain “essential critical infrastructure workers” must be allowed to continue to operate through the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. A memo released by the CISA states that this includes, among others, “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.”

What does this mean for you, as a homeowner? If you have a plumbing problem, you can still call our professionals at Golden Rule! Because plumbing is considered an essential service, you will never have to worry about clogged drains or broken pipes, even during this national crisis. We are also still available for heating and air conditioning service, as this falls under the banner of “essential operation” for the average residence.

Golden Rule Is Proud to Serve You

Even in these trying times, you can count on Golden Rule for all your essential services. Nothing is more important to us than the safety and health of our customers and employees, which is why we are committed to providing the same level of quality work as always, while also taking additional precautions to stop the spread of the Coronavirus. For other questions you may have regarding safety and protection, just look to the recommendations from the CDC. By doing our part and being as careful as possible, we will pull through this!
