North Carolina: The Official Stance for Construction
Construction Status: Essential
Earlier a statewide stay at home order was implemented until April 30 after several cities and counties announced the stay at home orders. However, the latest announcement has to lead to its extension until May 8, 2020.
Issued on July 16, 2020, Governor Cooper has declared the extension of phase 2 of opening in his executive order 151. However, another executive order issued on July 14, 2020 contained guidelines as well as declaration on the extension of transportation waivers in North Carolina. This is likely to help the construction agencies get some relief from the continuous disruption of supply chain network.
October 2020 Update: Governor Cooper has announced that the restrictions related to COVID-19 will be reduced post September 30, 2020 as the state looks stable when it comes to the cases. This may bring more ease to construction contractors who are looking for opportunities since it will call for various public and private projects in North Carolina.
