Important Clarification Regarding Gov. Inslee's Stay Healthy, Stay Home Order 25-20
On March 23, 2020, Governor Inslee issued Stay Healthy, Stay Home Order 25-20 clarifying that construction is NOT considered essential, other than exceptions for limited circumstances.
We are advising construction companies to:
We urge our members to ensure that they are FULLY compliant with standard health and safety regulations along with the COVID-19 specific notices provided by WA DOH, CDC, and local jurisdictions. There will be efforts from various sources to identify non-compliance, which could involve financial consequences and having your projects shut down if job sites are anything less than 100% compliant.
If you do not feel that you can operate under these guidelines and achieve full compliance, it may be advisable to shut your operations down until you’re able to comply or the Governor issues new directives.
