With protestors afoot outside the Capitol building in Harrisburg, Governor Wolf provided additional information on the Commonwealth’s plans to begin reopening businesses, including construction sites, within Pennsylvania.  Per the Governor, “limited construction” activities will be permitted to resume on May 8, to the extent such activities can occur in compliance with job site regulations the Commonwealth has yet to release.  The May 8 date provides developers, contractors, business owners and potential home owners with some hope that their projects can begin (or continue) in a little under three weeks.  However, it is unclear what is meant by “limited construction” and what job site regulations will be required by the Commonwealth.

We will monitor the Commonwealth’s updates and, in the meantime, we encourage you to refer to guidance that has been issued by the Commonwealth and the McNees COVID-19 Resource Center.
