Under Executive Order from Governor Newsom, a shelter-in-place directive has been issued for the entire state of California, exempting operations of the federal critical infrastructure sectors. (See entire Executive Order here.)
Construction is considered critical infrastructure, including residential construction.
You’re good to continue working! Social distancing and disinfecting precautions need to be put in place, all workers who have any symptom of illness need to stay/go home.
Public-access closures have been implemented in many City/County agencies, but they continue to work behind the scenes. Alternative options to proceed can include online permitting, appointments for submittals, etc. How each individual jurisdiction is able to handle permitting and inspections may vary. See what information we’ve gathered here.
Additionally, effective today, March 20, 2020, Valley Contractors Exchange staff will be working remotely. Print orders will have a 24hr turnaround, with pick up either at a designated time or via our mail drop-box.
We’ll get through this! Be smart, be safe and stay healthy!
