The Coronavirus pandemic and shelter-in-place orders that our nation, and the world at large, have been going through is one of the most confusing times we’ve had to endure. With misinformation, fear-mongering and a general lack of knowledge about government changes, it can be hard to understand what we are allowed to do and not do. For many Illinois residents, conflicting state and national viewpoints have made it foggy in regards to how to structure our day-to-day lives.
One of the biggest questions is what is actually still allowed to be open?
With many in the workforce now at home for long stretches of time, more people are finishing those long-forgotten projects or trying their hand at DIY. Home improvement stores have stayed open in order to supply essential products. In Illinois, construction companies and trade services are still active and in business. Everything from plumbing and roofing to, you guessed it, siding installation and repair are still rolling in The Land of Lincoln. The only difference is that employees are taking more precautions and adhering to CDC social distancing guidelines in order to reduce the spread of Covid-19.
The idea is that most contractors, such as siding companies, that work outdoors are at a lower risk for catching or spreading the virus because they are not crammed into small spaces with large groups of people and already offer limited to no-contact service. Of course, every state, and even municipality, has made up their own minds about what is best for the region and their people so be sure to SEE HOW YOUR STATE MEASURES UP.
