As part of New Jersey’s Road Back plan, Governor Phil Murphy signed an executive order[2] permitting the resumption of non-essential construction activities.

The order permits non-essential construction projects to resume effective 6 a.m. on Monday, May 18. All construction projects must abide by the social distancing, safety, and sanitization requirements that are described in detail in the Governor’s executive order.

“Over the past eight weeks, New Jerseyans have taken our stay-at-home order seriously and have created the conditions that make this next phase possible,” said Governor Murphy. “The steps we are taking allow for important standards of social distancing to continue with the return of safe, responsible business operations.”
