The mayor of London Sadiq Khan joined Scotland’s first minister Nicola Sturgeon in calling for non-emergency construction sites to cease activity. While Construction minister Nadhim Zahawi has defended firms, who have kept their construction sites open and hit out at the widespread criticism received by the sector.
The current government guidelines are construction sites should continue but respect the 2-metre social distancing rule.
Ireland and Spain have ordered construction sites to close to contain the spread of the virus, it seems we could be heading in the same direction if the government brings in stricter measures!
Things change daily but here at Pawlus Construction the safety and health of our workers are the number one priority, we continue to follow government guidance very closely.
