Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf announced that public and private residential and non-residential construction may resume statewide starting Friday, May 8, in accordance with safety guidance the administration will issue. Construction projects already deemed to be life-sustaining may continue while adhering to social distancing, personnel limits and other guidance as announced by the administration.
“Over the past six weeks, Pennsylvanians have come together like never before to halt the spread of COVID-19,” says Wolf. “It has not been easy, but it has paid off. Today, we are taking small steps toward a degree of normalcy. ... On May 8, construction will resume statewide. I want to caution that we will not be resuming operations as they were in February. We’re going to continue to take precautions that limit our physical contact with others, and we will closely monitor this to see if it can be done safely.”
