Good Morning,

At his press conference Friday, Governor Cuomo announced what we’ve known all along: construction is not an industry that is spreading COVID 19. As the following picture shows, the transmission rate in construction is .66%.  
We’re thankful to all of you for your continued effort to ensure that your construction sites and offices are safe and clean. We need to make sure we continue to do all we can to keep that transmission rate as low as possible. Let’s not be an industry that gets more attention and runs the risk of a shutdown.

There are likely additional changes coming but we’re hopeful construction is left alone. We’ll continue to send you updates as needed.

Stay safe. Stay healthy.

Happy holidays
