Southwestern Electric Power Company is temporarily suspending all power disconnections for non-payment.

The company made the announcement on Facebook Friday.

The post reads:

"SWEPCO is temporarily suspending all disconnections for non-payment as the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread in our communities. We know our customers are concerned about their families and ensuring they have reliable electric service allows them to focus on staying healthy and well. We are committed to doing what we can to help our customers, our employees, and the communities we serve navigate this uncertain time."

It's one less thing we have to worry about while we're still all trying to make sense of the COVID-19 crisis.
