The government has come in for some criticism as confusion reigns from the contradictory advice from the Prime Ministers announcement.
“It is the case, as Robert Jenrick pointed out, that construction on sites should continue. People should obviously exercise sensitivity and common sense and follow social distancing measures. But construction in the open air on those types of sites can continue.”
Government guidelines on social distancing say people should be at least 2m apart but this may be impossible to enforce on a building site, and in London especially public transport is used for the majority of workers to get around.
This is a fast-changing situation and we all hope we can continue to work on our projects and come out the other side, remember one day will be 6 months from now and all this will be a distant memory!
Stay safe out there!
