Under this policy non-essential businesses are required to close, which includes nearly all commercial and residential construction It states:
In general, commercial and residential construction is not authorized under the Proclamation because construction is not considered to be an essential activity.
Chuckanut Builders is complying with this new guidance and we have stopped all work on our job sites until midnight of April 8.
