    Im curious how many "essential employees" are on here and what classifies you as one, if you can share.

    I am, because I'm in telecommunications.

    I am still running house calls servicing water filters plumbed into private residences.

    The plumbing aspect makes my services essential.

    I'm IT Support for essential businesses. Some of our productions are medical related. I can still work from home but will go in if need be. Had a General Manager send out email basically saying to print this email in order to travel to and from work. Really, he thinks it's going to get to the point where some's going to be checking for "travel papers"?

    Working on it!
    We received letters today from one of our customers - one from the DoD - stating our customer was essential to fulfilling government contracts which rolls down to the tier 2 suppliers like my company. So, I'll be at work.

    I design paperboard packaging for a large consumer package company (Pizza, beer, cereal etc). So I have to say thank you to all the folks cleaning off the shelves at the grocery store. Your keeping me employed an because folks need food it's considered essential. I am very fortunate.

    I work for a company that processes credit card/debit card transactions...and work has been busy! 100% work from home so currently unaffected.

    my wife on the other hand, is a charge nurse, who happens to handle infectious diseases on her floor. She is truly essential!

    I work for an oil refinery so the site as a whole is essential but I'm in the project design/ development group so was among the first tier of folks asked to work from home (which we can do with minimal impact).
