Ger Ready for Work to Resume
Get ready! As New York and New Jersey continue to reopen, Orange & Rockland will incrementally resume work that was put on pause in response to the spread of COVID-19. Beginning with work that requires little-to-no interaction with customers, crews will resume gas safety inspections, reading meters and installing smart meters on the exterior of buildings or in public areas.
Here’s what you need to know:
- Customers will receive advance notification of planned work and have the option of rescheduling it if they prefer.
- When on the job, our employees will maintain a 6-foot distance, wherever possible.
- Employees will wear face coverings when working in your home and may put on other personal protective equipment as needed to safely work on live electric and gas systems.
- O&R will resume important customer-focused services, including walk-in service centers and energy efficiency visits to homes and businesses, as circumstances allow in the coming months.
