Governor Newsom has announced a “Regional Stay-at-Home Order” that will be triggered if Intensive Care Unit (ICU) capacity drops below 15 percent in a given region. Regions will have 48 hours to implement the order when it is triggered; once the order is implemented, residents will be required to stay at home as much as possible and minimize mixing to reduce exposure.
The order does not alter the existing, construction relevant, definitions of an “Essential Workforce.” Construction firms continue to be authorized to operate during a stay-at-home order. Our industry is covered under “Sector Index 13” of the essential workforce definitions.
While this is a statewide order, counties are authorized to have more restrictive criteria and different closures. Go here to check your county’s status.
