Normally, if your household appliance breaks, you can easily find who to call to come replace it. But now, during 2020, if your household appliance breaks, there’s much more you might be worried about. Which repair shops are open? Do they send employees who will take precautions while in my home?
In normal times, you’d want to base your decision on how old the appliance is, how many repairs it’s had, and the cost of parts and labor versus the price of a new machine. Now, however, with social distancing necessary, you have to factor in whether it’s worth potentially risking the health of your family and the health of the technician to get something repaired. Meantime, some retailers may not be delivering and installing new appliances like they normally do.
Consumer Reports posted a helpful article in April addressing these concerns. Here are the main points:

- Buying a new appliance
