Phase I Construction Restart
On April 29, 2020, Governor Inslee authorized implementation of a phased restart to construction projects. Authorized construction now includes:
- Construction that was previously authorized under Proclamation 20-25 and the Governor’s March 25 memo on construction; and
- Construction not previously authorized, but only if the construction activity is needed to fulfill a contractual obligation in effect prior to March 23, or the construction activity is authorized by a permit issued prior to March 23.
Before recommencing work, all contractors are required to develop a comprehensive COVID-19 exposure control, mitigation, and recovery plan. The required elements of the plan are outlined in the above link to the job site requirements. Prior to restarting construction, the homeowner must send an email to the Town confirming that they have the requisite plan, that the plan meets the requirements of the Governor’s proclamation, and that the plan is posted at the job site and available for inspection while construction activities are taking place.
The list of job site requirements can be found here: Phase 1 Construction Restart COVID-19 Job Site Requirements. The Governor’s Office also has provided a memo containing additional information, which can be found here: Frequently Asked Questions.
