COVID-19 Information & Guidance for GCA Members

The COVID-19 virus has rapidly disrupted our personal lives and daily routines.  While many businesses and community activities have been ordered closed by the Governor, and gatherings of 10 or more have been discouraged by the President, as we write, the construction industry’s work continues.


New information from federal, state and local government health professionals and elected leaders is emerging on a daily, if not hourly, basis about how to prevent, control, and mitigate the impacts of the virus.


To help our members stay abreast of the latest information, Bill Tyson, the GCA’s Director of Labor Relations will be sending out industry relevant COVID-19 email updates and will also be available to answer questions at BTyson@gcany.net.


In addition, the GCA’s COVID-19 Resource Center provides links to information and industry specific guidance. The resource center will be continuously updated as new information becomes available.
