COVID-19 does not directly affect construction

Posted: Updated:

While restaurants and bars are closing, construction workers are still at it. 

"We all have a lot of jobs going, our phones are still ringing, a lot going on, subs are still working," Custom Home Builder Robert Wood said.

Wood said some sub-contractors are taking precautions to keep their workers safe. 

"There are some guys that are trying to not put different sets of subs in the house at the same time," Wood said.

If workers are sick, Wood said they are sending them home and they will not get paid. 

As for Citizen's Tower, Councilman Steve Massengale and Mayor Dan Pope said construction is on track.

"The furniture is in and the signs are up," Massengale said.

"Thank goodness our facilities folks and our contractor are very separate from what we're doing around our virus response," Pope said.

They said staff should be in the building soon.

"Everything is up in the air right now because of what we're dealing with, but before this Coronavirus epidemic we were discussing having a meeting on March 31st," Massengale said.

"Feel fully confident that we will be there for our first meeting in April which is on the 14th," Pope said.

At the meeting, Council hopes to discuss the new technology and flow of the building.
