3/25/2020 - 12:04:53 PM


 

UPDATE WED. 3/25/2020

New stats from the State on Tuesday - From the Meadeville Tribune - Linked above.

The state has received 15,092 requests for waivers from Gov. Tom Wolf’s order that “non-life-sustaining” businesses close to slow the spread of coronavirus, Department of Community and Economic Development spokeswoman Casey Smith said Tuesday.

At the end of business Monday, the agency had approved 2,486 waiver requests, denied 2,135 and determined that 1,279 business that had sought waivers didn’t need them, Smith said. That leaves almost 9,200 waivers still pending.

A FEW ITEMS THAT MIGHT BE IMPORTANT:

IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING SENDING IN A WAIVER DO IT SOON.

WAIVERS HAVE BEEN GRANTED, EVEN FOR CONSTRUCTION SITES.

THE STATE OF NEW JERSEY IS PERMITTING ALL CONSTRUCTION WITHOUT ANY WAIVERS.

  1. A WAIVER APPLICATION SHOULD BE FOR ONLY ONE JOB SITE. All the CDC guidelines should be clearly listed in detail for that site only.
  2. ONE CUSTOMER SPECIFICALLY ASKED THE AVONDALE STATE POLICE IF TRAVEL THROUGH THAT AREA IS OK ENROUTE TO A STATE WHERE CONSTRUCTION IS PERMITTED. The answer was yes.
  3. NO MATTER WHERE YOU GO TO WORK CHECK FIRST THAT THE PROPERTY OWNER WANTS YOU THERE. I am hearing of cases where the crews were sent home by the property owner. In at least one case this was influenced by other property owners or passers-by calling the police.
  4. BE SURE MATERIALS WILL BE DELIVERED. You may have to present your CDC plan to suppliers before they will deliver.
  5. Limit the number of people on a jobsite. Limit how many subs can be there. detail all that in the waiver application.
  6. I AM HEARING OF WAIVER APPLICATIONS BEING APPROVED. So far the only ones I have heard approved were sent in last week by Saturday the 21st.
  7. IT MAY BE VERY CRUCIAL TO TAKE THE TEMPERATURE OF ANYONE ENTERING YOUR JOBSITE......AND MAKE THAT PART OF YOUR PLAN AND APPLICATION
  8. I CAN SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION ON THE COMPUTER IF YOU NEED THAT SERVICE. Drop it off or fax to my attention 717 442 7946.
