Governor Charlie Baker has issued an emergency order requiring all businesses and organizations that do not provide “COVID-19 Essential Services” to close their physical workplaces and facilities to workers, customers and the public as of Tuesday, March 24th at noon until Tuesday, April 7th at noon. The Governor’s list of essential services includes: “Construction Workers who support the construction, operation, inspection, and maintenance of construction sites and construction projects (including housing construction)”
As a result of this order, Laplante Construction will close our office to the public effective Tuesday, March 24. Further, we will complete only essential, in-process, residential projects that are critical to the safety, health and well-being of our client homeowners. This will include in-process insurance and emergency repair-related projects that must be completed in order to get our clients safely back in to their homes.
We will not start any new construction projects until Tuesday, April 7 or at such time that the Governor issues a new directive.
