URGENT Alert: Construction on Non-Essential Projects to Shut Down
Urgent news: Empire State Development has issued updated guidance regarding essential construction activity. This new guidance limits types of construction that are deemed "essential" and orders an immediate shutdown of all non-essential construction. Section 9 of the the guidance is reproduced below: 9. Construction All non-essential construction must shut down except emergency construction, (e.g. a project necessary to protect health and safety of the occupants, or to continue a project if it would be unsafe to allow to remain undone until it is safe to shut the site).

Essential construction may continue and includes roads, bridges, transit facilities, utilities, hospitals or health care facilities, affordable housing, and homeless shelters. At every site, if essential or emergency non-essential construction, this includes maintaining social distance, including for purposes of elevators/meals/entry and exit. Sites that cannot maintain distance and safety best practices must close and enforcement will be provided by the state in coordination with the city/local governments. This will include fines of up to $10,000 per violation.

For purposes of this section construction work does not include a single worker, who is the sole employee/worker on a job site.

Members should note the social distancing requirements and fines levied on violators of the Order.
