Effective at 12:01 am on May 7, 2020, workers in the construction industry, including workers in the building trades (plumbers, electricians, HVAC technicians, and similar workers), can resume work in the City of Bloomfield Hills, subject to the enhanced social-distancing rules described below.

Businesses in the construction industry must:

  • Prohibit gatherings of any size in which people cannot maintain six feet of distance from one another.
  • Limit in-person interaction with clients and patrons to the maximum extent possible, and barring any such interaction in which people cannot maintain six feet of distance from one another.
  • Provide personal protective equipment such as gloves, goggles, face shields, and face masks as appropriate for the activity being performed.
  • Adopt protocols to limit the sharing of tools and equipment to the maximum extent possible and to ensure frequent and thorough cleaning of tools, equipment, and frequently touched surfaces.

Businesses or operations in the construction industry must also:

  • Designate a site-specific supervisor to monitor and oversee the implementation of COVID-19 control strategies developed under Executive Order 2020-70. The supervisor must remain on-site at all times during activities. An on-site worker may be designated to perform the supervisory role.
  • Conduct a daily entry screening protocol for workers and visitors entering the worksite, including a questionnaire covering symptoms and exposure to people with possible COVID-19, together with, if possible, a temperature screening.
  • Create dedicated entry point(s) at every worksite, if possible, for daily screening or in the alternative issue stickers or other indicators to workers to show that they received a screening before entering the worksite that day.
  • Require face shields or masks to be worn when workers cannot consistently maintain six feet of separation from other workers. Provide instructions for the distribution of personal protective equipment and designate on-site locations for soiled masks.
  • Encourage or require the use of work gloves, as appropriate, to prevent skin contact with contaminated surfaces.
  • Identify choke points and high-risk areas where workers must stand near one another (such as hallways, hoists and elevators, break areas, water stations, and buses) and control their access and use (including through physical barriers) so that social distancing is maintained.
  • Ensure there are sufficient hand-washing or hand-sanitizing stations at the worksite to enable easy access by workers.
  • Notify contractors (if a subcontractor) or owners (if a contractor) of any confirmed COVID-19 cases among workers at the worksite.
  • Restrict unnecessary movement between project sites.
  • Create protocols for minimizing personal contact upon delivery of materials to the worksite.
