COVID-19: McCarthy Tire’s Businesses Deemed “Life Sustaining”

March 20, 2020 – Pennsylvania Governor Wolf issued an order on March 19, 2020, regarding the closure of all businesses that are not life sustaining. The Governor’s order included a list of industries that are considered to be “life sustaining.” These are specifically exempt from the shutdown.

Each of McCarthy Tire’s businesses are authorized to continue operations. They include:

·       Automotive parts, accessories, and tire stores.

·       Freight trucking.

·       Support activities for on-the-road transportation.

·       Vehicle repair and maintenance.

·       Rubber manufacturing.

·       Warehousing and storage.

McCarthy Tire falls under these exemptions, as our business is the backbone of interstate transportation activities. Millions of people count on us to keep the supply chain moving – our trucks, services, and processes ensure that food supplies are secure and available, that medical products reach hospitals and patients in need, and that time-sensitive goods and materials are available to manufacturers and consumers globally.

Our communities are also counting on us to ensure that vehicles used by EMS, police, fire, waste removal, and other life-sustaining industries, as well as vehicles used by our doctors, nurses, and emergency personnel, operate safely on our roads.

AS A LIFE-SUSTAINING BUSINESS, ALL OF McCARTHY TIRE SERVICE’S LOCATIONS AND SERVICES WILL CONTINUE TO OPERATE IN PENNSYLVANIA.
