Last week we received the President’s guidelines to reopen the country and get the economy moving again. It is a phased approach that requires states to achieve certain benchmarks in order to move on to the next phase. In order to enter the first phase, states must have seen a decrease in COVID-19 cases for a fourteen-day period. Over the weekend our Governor noted that we have not seen a 14 day decrease in cases yet. In short – Kentucky is are not even in phase 1 of the President’s plan.
Let me say again – safety is paramount during this pandemic. Maintaining your health and safety has been the primary focus of many of these daily newsletters. It is important for our industry to practice all the safety measures that have been presented daily in this email. It is important for our subcontractors and employees to practice these safety measures. It is important for our customers to practice these safety procedures.
We don’t know when we’ll be in phase 1. We don’t know when we’ll get to phase 2. We don’t know if we’ll all be in this situation again in the fall or winter months.
We do know that, as of now, our industry is still considered essential. That means we can still work as long as we follow the CDC guidelines. Keep practicing social distancing. Keep staggering subs on job sites. Keep cleaning surfaces and cleaning your sites so we limit the spread. Keep your signage up prohibiting sick people from entering your sites. Don’t let your guard down now.
We’re all doing the best we can right now and we’re all making decisions that we never thought we’d have to make. We are here for you and we’re happy to help – however we can.
