However, the said projects must fall under the “priority infrastructure” category
On Monday, the local government announced that private and public construction projects will be allowed to resume as long as the area is under general community quarantine, reported INQUIRER.net.
Harry Roque, the presidential spokesperson of the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases, revised the guidelines thereby allowing priority infrastructure projects to operate again, which includes housing, business process outsourcing, manufacturing, communication, water facilities, food production, fishery, fish port development and agriculture.
Other construction activities, such as digital works, sewerage projects, facilities for construction personnel and water service facility projects were also allowed to resume.
Moreover, the local authorities released a construction safety guideline that must be followed by the staff who are working during the public health crisis.
Before any project can commence, the offices in charge must ensure that they only hire workers aged 21 to 59 years old without pre-existing health conditions and must they undergo COVID-19 testing, among other protocols.
During deployment, workers’ health conditions must be monitored regularly, errands outside construction premises must be limited, common areas must be frequently disinfected and much more.
