Thank you for your partnership as we navigate through the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. On March 22, 2020, Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton, MD, MPH, issued a Stay at Home Order (Order) to further prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Ohio. The Order is in effect from 11:59 pm on March 23, 2020 through 11:59 pm on April 6, 2020, unless rescinded or modified. The full text of the Order is attached.
The Order notes several exemptions, including an exemption in Part 9, providing for the continuation of most construction as Essential Infrastructure. The Order authorizes individuals to leave their residence to perform work to offer, provide, operate, maintain and repair Essential Infrastructure. Essential Infrastructure includes construction, including public works and school construction.
