The PCA has been informed by IDPH Plumbing and Water Quality Program Manager Brian Cox that in response to Governor J.B. Pritzker’s Gubernatorial Disaster Proclamations and Executive Orders related to COVID-19, one of the emergency rules extends the deadline for plumbers’ license renewals, apprentice plumbers’ license renewal, and plumbing inspectors’ certificate renewals 150 days to August 28, 2020.
In addition, while new license applications for all programs are not being processed at this time, IDPH encourages its licensees to continue to submit renewal applications and payments as they are able. Also, many IDPH staff are working remotely or are tasked with assisting with Illinois’ response to the COVID-19 pandemic, therefore applicants should expect to experience delays in correspondence and processing.
IDPH will continue to reevaluate this situation as it progresses and will reassess the need for additional licensure and registration extensions or other necessary accommodations.
