AUSTIN & TEXAS CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY
We are receiving requests from local hospitals for additional N95 masks/respirators. If you have any available to donate, please contact
at the Austin AGC.
As with last week, construction activity in Austin (and across Texas) is continuing at this time. However, we urge you to adopt jobsite best practices in order to prevent any workers from getting coronavirus. A list of best practices is
