Indiana has issued a Stay Home Order that also defines union staff and construction workers as “essential workers,” allowed to continue working during the extent of the order.
(3/20) Original post:
This afternoon, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker issued a “Stay Home” Order across the state of Illinois. This order will go into effect at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 21 and last through April 7.
Construction work will continue. Construction has been declared “essential” work, and so members working in construction and in industries supporting construction WILL BE PERMITTED to continue working.
Whether or not you are working, please take steps to protect yourself from the spread of COVID-19. Please consult the CDC website for information on symptoms and ways to stay healthy.
