Transportation Department Continues Working During Coronavirus PandemicAuthor/Presenter: Corey, Russ
The coronavirus pandemic is not having a major impact on Alabama Department of Transportation’s construction and maintenance program. Maintenance work and construction projects are considered essential functions. However, Transportation Department employees and contractors working on Transportation Department projects are all required to follow the national, state, and local health orders and recommendations currently in place. In addition to wearing gloves as they always do, construction workers have been advised of the need for social distancing, minimizing crowd sizes, proper hand washing methods, and other Centers for Disease Control guidance for avoiding the spread of germs.
