So long as social distancing and proper hygiene protocols are maintained (which is mandatory) during construction and building inspection, the state is leaving it to the judgment of project sponsors and contractors to determine which projects should be deferred and which can continue: "The state also urges any small scale construction projects (e.g. home renovations) to be reasonably deferred without penalty. For large scale and public investment, projects should be evaluated on a case by case basis..."
