COVID-19 Construction Activity Report

Is Construction Essential In Your State?

Around the U.S., we’re seeing more states, counties, and cities choose to close nonessential businesses or issue some sort of “stay at home” or “shelter in place” orders. For the most part, construction activity has been included as an essential activity that can continue with business as usual during these orders—but there are pockets where construction sites have been shuttered. Last updated April 30, 2020.
