NEWS & UPDATES - APRIL
Latest Update from Business Manager, David Baldwin:
To provide clarification on the limited Stay at Home Order Governor Newsom issued today, below we have outlined the relevant details of the order as it relates to the construction industry.
On November 19, 2020 Governor Gavin Newsom and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issued a limited Stay at Home Order requiring that non-essential work, movement and gatherings stop between 10 PM and 5 AM in counties under Tier One (Purple) of California's Blueprint for a Safer Economy.
The order will take effect at 10 PM Saturday, November 21. This is the same as the March stay at home order, but applied only between 10 PM and 5 AM and only in purple tier counties that are seeing the highest rates of positive cases and hospitalizations.
The Order does not alter the existing definitions of an Essential Workforce. Our industry is covered under “Sector Index” number 13 of those definitions. Construction businesses employing essential workers are allowed to continue to operate during the stay at home order.
This order remains in effect until 5:00am PST on December 21, 2020, and may be extended or revised as needed.
