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.
