Yesterday, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf accelerated the date of reopening limited construction projects in the state amid the coronavirus pandemic. The new guidance, linked here, allows previously non-essential construction activities to begin on May 1, 2020:

Beginning May 1, 2020, all businesses in the construction industry in the Commonwealth, including those in the new construction, renovation, and repair, as well as land subdivision and design-related field activities, are permitted to maintain in-person operations pursuant to the Governor’s and Secretary of Health’s April 20, 2020, amendments to the Business Closure Orders so long as their activities strictly adhere to this guidance. Construction projects previously granted an exemption to continue in-person operations may continue operations but must adhere to this guidance.

Prior to May 1, all businesses in the construction industry should continue to follow existing Administration orders and guidance and may continue to maintain in-person operations to the extent authorized by any existing exemptions.

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