Essential Service

Recommended Posts

I'm in Texas, and with all the city and county shutdowns for coronavirus, government is only allowing "essential business" to run until further notice.

I noticed that applies to construction workers, does it apply to roofers as well?

Thanks for your feedback!

If it's like here, it only applies to roofers when there is an emergency with a roof that needs fixing - it doesn't allow you to accept a new job if/when there is nothing about the old roof that's considered to be an emergency/life threatening.

There is a Facebook site called Washington Home Inspectors where inspectors who are ignoring the governor's order are trying very hard to parse the governor's declaration in such a way as to allow them to ethically violate the law and perform inspections.

Myself and others have told them repeatedly in no  unvarnished terms to STAY THE F**K HOME and they still don't seem to get it.

I'm outside of Dallas, but I believe we are "essential" because we can still be considered within the construction/remodeling industry and as far as now, they are still on the job.

Hope this answers your question.

The Louisiana governor's proclamation has a section that defines what is distinctly essential. Another section sets forth what is not essential.  Home inspections fall in the ether, in-between these two sections.  A third section details what the in-between service providers must do.  It does not say they must stay home. As far as I can tell, each individual practitioner is to use his own common sense.  I've gotten calls for AC service...and I've serviced those calls, but I've gotten no calls for inspections. The pain in my throat I experienced two days ago ended the day it started.
