Government backs construction sites to stay openPosted Tuesday March 31st 2020
Government business minister, Nadhim Zahawi has reaffirmed that house-building and other construction work must keep going to help the economy survive the devastation of the coronavirus pandemic.
The position of the UK government remains firmly that all work that cannot be done from home should continue, on the condition that all workers remain two metres apart and observe all other Public Health coronavirus guidelines.
Keep Construction Sites Open
He said as long as workers follow the strict social distancing rules, businesses had every right to stay open provided they did not fall into categories ordered to be shut, such as bars and restaurants.
Senior minister, Michael Gove and Robert Jenrick, Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government have also backed this saying construction on sites should continue.
