How the Governor's Executive Order Affects Contractors

On Monday March 23, 2020, Oregon Governor Kate Brown issued Executive Order 20-12. The order did not include construction among the business or industries required to close. However, the order does require all business that remain in operation to employ social distancing guidelines and to designate an employee or officer to establish implement and enforce social distancing policies consistent with guidance from the Oregon Health Authority.

Contractors that continue to operate are encouraged to work closely with their safety specialists and as appropriate with legal counsel to ensure they operate in compliance with these requirements.

State and Federal Resources

As construction projects continue, CCB encourages contractors to incorporate COVID-19 safety planning and worksite-specific safety practices into their projects. Contractors should continually evaluate specific risks associated with a particular job site in light of the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Oregon Health Authority and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
