Ohio Under Shutdown Order, Construction Trades Exempted

To all,

As we all know this pandemic is rapidly changing, in Governor DeWine’s press conference this afternoon he has issued the “Stay at Home” order starting tomorrow night at midnight.  The link at the bottom of the post will take you to the order.

In the order is a list of exceptions, under # 9 Essential Infrastructure the construction industry and building maintenance is included and under #12 k Critical Trades the men and women of the Building Trades are listed, we are expected to still go to work at this time.

We all need to be extremely cautious and if there is reason to believe you have been exposed or are feeling ill please stay home. Yesterday I was informed of the first confirmed case on a local construction site, The Lumen project at Playhouse Square, that job is shutdown by the General Contractor (Gilbane) for disinfecting,

I do not have any more details or a time frame.

Things are changing by the hour I’ll do my best to keep everyone updated. Stay Healthy
