Governor Inslee Announces Plan to Allow Construction Projects Previously Underway to be Completed

The recommendations were informed by workers, contractors, health and safety experts, and local government officials, for safe construction standards. The governor signed an addendum to Proclamation 20–25. The memorandum serves as the criteria for a limited Phase 1 Construction Restart.


Phase 1 Construction Restart COVID-19 Job Site Requirements have been provided by the Governor’s Office. No jobsite may operate until the contractor can meet and maintain all requirements, including providing materials, schedules and equipment required to comply. Currently operating projects must be in compliance by no later than Friday, May 1.                        


The City of Gig Harbor has announced that it will begin receiving requests for inspection on Monday, April 27th. In order to qualify for an inspection, the job site must be in compliance with the Governor’s Phase 1 Construction Restart COVID-19 Job Site Requirements. Job sites that are deemed to not be in compliance with the Governor’s guidelines will not be inspected.


All complaints regarding construction activity and job site compliance with the Governor’s guidelines should be directed to the Washington State Department of Labor and Industry Call Center at 1-800-423-7233. Complaints may also be submitted by email or online
