Keystone's response to customers and sub-contractors regarding covid-19 concerns and regulations
To all our valued employees and subcontractors,
As you know, Governor Pritzker issued Executive Order 2020-10 on Friday, March 20, 2020. This order required that all non-essential
businesses and operations cease as of 5:00 pm on Saturday, March 21. However, various business activities related to
infrastructure, including construction, were deemed essential activities and allowed to continue. We are currently evaluating
whether our teams can continue to perform construction activities within the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease
The health, safety, and well-being of our employees and subcontracts is our number one priority as the battle against COVID-19
continues. We are in the process of contacting all of our subcontractor’s leadership teams to further evaluate the next steps and
review the policies they are implementing as they pertain to their individual teams. We respect all policies set forth by the
individual offices/management teams and are keeping job site attendance voluntary.
As we continue to digest the information within the executive order and the information provided by the CDC, we urge all
subcontractors, tradesmen, and superintendents to exercise Social Distancing as defined by the order and CDC guidelines. We
look forward to partnering with our subcontractors to ensure a safe working environment. We urge anyone feeling sick to stay
home. See Page 2 for Common Symptoms.
For job sites without running water, Keystone will provide disinfecting hand rubs, and urges all tradesmen to frequently wash
their hands. Restroom facilities and running water/hand soap will be made available where possible. In addition, we urge
everyone to follow the guidelines set forth the CDC including, but not limited to the following:
- Practice respiratory etiquette, including covering coughs and sneezes and frequent hand washing.
- Practice physical distancing from other workers to the extent possible.
- Avoid using other workers’ phones, tools, and equipment, when possible.
- Maintain regular housekeeping practices, including routine cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces.
Keystone Construct office employees will continue to operate remotely. Employees are encouraged to work from home when
applicable and follow the same CDC guidelines.
