The coronavirus outbreak has upended life as we know it. The State of California is under a stay-at-home order for at least the next several weeks. Most residents must stay home and limit social interaction. The goal is to stop the spread of COVID-19 and prevent the state’s medical system from becoming overwhelmed. Yet, many businesses remain open during this time. The federal government has classified them as essential.

Although the federal government has released its list of essential businesses, many people still have questions. For example, am I able to get my car fixed during the coronavirus outbreak? Are auto repair shops considered an essential business? The simple answer is yes. However, it is not business as usual. Most service and repair shops have operational and safety measures in place to protect the public. They include: 

  • Fluctuating business hours
  • Reductions in staff size
  • Methods for vehicle drop-off and pickup
