With State and City Governments looking for ways to contain COVID-19, they are starting to implement "stay in place" or "stay at home" ordinances. We fully support our governments' efforts to minimize the risks and to help slow down the spread of this virus.
At the same time, they recognize the essential need to keep construction companies operating to support industry and key areas of our communities.
Multi-Craft Contractors, Inc. (and other construction related companies) have been designated as "essential" and are allowed to continue working. Click on the link for the letter to be used in cases where you might be asked to confirm that you are essential. We've been told that this shouldn't be an issue, but we wanted you to have this, just in case.
