SECOND UPDATE: Construction in the Age of Coronavirus

March 21, 2020
Client Alert
Late on Friday, the Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf slightly revised the list of what is and what is not life-sustaining. The list is linked here. The list indicates that construction activities are excepted if they involve emergency repairs or construction on health care facilities. Enforcement has now been pushed back until Monday morning at 8:00 a.m. A waiver form has now been provided on the website. The FAQ section offers the following guidance relating to construction:

13. Construction was classified as non-life-sustaining. Should all construction companies suspend in-person physical operations? Can a construction company continue projects related to road repair, road completion, flood mitigation, etc.?

Construction activities not clearly authorized under the OHS Guidance should suspend general operations, but may maintain specific limited operations necessary to ensure compliance with federal, state, or local regulatory requirements.

Please do not hesitate to call on the Stradley Ronon Construction Group for assistance regarding these issues.
