Washington State Eases Restriction on Construction with New Guidelines

With new guidelines now in place, Gov. Jay Inslee announced the State of Washington has started to ease some restrictions that were put into place to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. That includes allowing low risk construction that is underway to resume. The new guidelines for construction include: Existing projects must have a safety plan to maintain physical distancing, adequate PPE and a COVID-19 supervisor. Construction companies must have a comprehensive COVID-19 exposure, control and mitigation plan. The governor said companies must post written notice of work to be done at the job site and maintain a healthy and safe worksite. “No job site may operate until the contractor can meet and maintain all of these requirements,” Inslee said.
