GUIDANCE FOR CONTRACTORS DEALING
WITH IMPACTS OF CORONAVIRUS
The impacts that the Coronavirus has had and will continue to have on the construction industry and construction projects are significant and wide reaching. More and more states and localities are issuing complete or partial mandatory shut downs of projects. With respect to projects that are continuing to work, impacts at the project site could include the need for enhanced safety and hygienic requirements, social distancing measures, and interruptions and shut downs due to people testing positive. Labor availability has been impacted by people having to stay home to take care of family members or attend to child care issues, quarantines and people generally reluctant or unwilling to work due to fear of exposure.
