States to Decide If Construction is Essential Amid COVID-19 Outbreak

Western Springs, IL, March 23, 2020-As state governments limit business operations due to the COVID-19 outbreak, will construction be categorized as essential or non-essential, asks The National Law Review. 

“State governments are issuing orders suspending the full or partial operations of “non-essential” or “non-life-sustaining” businesses. At the time of writing this post, these states include Nevada, Pennsylvania (Order of PA Secretary of Health), New York. Some cities, such as Los Angeles are issuing similar orders. Other states and local municipalities are considering such measures, and it appears inevitable that more will come today and through next few days.”
