In Illinois, construction is deemed an essential infrastructure exception

Posted: 3/23/2020

From the CRCA: Pursuant to Governor Pritzker's "Stay at Home" Executive Order in Illinois, constuction is deemed an essential infrastructure exception.

Construction projects may continue as long as management and workers comply with social distancing requirements, which include maintaining at least six-foot social distancing from other individuals, washing hands with soap and water for at least twenty seconds as frequently as possible or using hand sanitizer, cover coughs or sneezes (into the sleeve or elbow, not hands), regularly cleaning high-touch surfaces, and not shaking hands. Many construction projects have implemented more stringent infection control measures, and if so, those should continue as well.
