The NYS Canal Corporation released updated guidance, regarding the anticipated resumption of design and construction work. The guidance includes an employee health and safety questionnaire as well as safety requirements, physical access questionnaire, and guidance on facemasks.
Canal Corporation is directing all consultants to temporarily stop all on-site design and construction related project activities:
"Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the NYPA/NYSCC is directing all consultants to temporarily stop all on-site design and construction related project activities occurring on NYSCC property until further direction is provided.
Design consultants may only continue working on our projects if the tasks at hand do not require field work to be completed on NYSCC property. We will continue to communicate with you about on-going design work, making progress where we can, but the safety of all of our internal and consultant team members must come first.
We will continue to inform you of important changes that are to be made to our policies and procedures in reaction to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Please contact Brent or I if you have any questions about this message."
