COVID-19: Can Construction Continue?

Stites & Harbison Client Alert, March 24, 2020

Over the past few hours and days, states and local governments have issued “shelter in place,” “stay at home” and other orders restricting gatherings and non-essential business. Most states and local governments exempt construction from the “stay at home” orders. Other orders exempt certain projects that are classified as “critical infrastructure.” Some jurisdictions prohibit construction completely. State orders may conflict with local orders.

With the evolving situation, it is difficult to keep track of where and when construction can continue and when it must stop. Links to recent orders issued by select states and municipalities that address construction are provided below. We will continue updating the links below as additional orders impacting construction are issued.
