COVID 19  

There have been several developments in the last couple of days regarding various jurisdictions' "Stay Home, Stay Safe" or "Shelter in Place" orders, as well as new guidance from the federal government.  This note is intended to give a brief overview.  

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued "Guidance on the Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce: Ensuring Community and National Resilience in COVID-19 Response Version 2.0" .  This is a very important document as many of the county and city orders specifically reference the CISA list of 16 critical infrastructure sectors. 

 If you operate in Dallas County, there are specific rules for construction employers and employees (see more).  These include mandatory temperature checks by the employee before they leave home, and by the employer before they enter the construction site. 

You may receive a letter from TCA President & CEO, Raymond Risk, emphasizing that it is necessary for Texas to keep the construction sector working during this crisis.  This letter was shared with several media outlets and we hope it will provide our local leaders with the support they need to allow the continuation of public works, residential and commercial construction in their communities.  


 Glass TEXpo™ ’20 scheduled for May 1-2, 2020 in San Antonio has been cancelled due to the current worldwide health emergency surrounding COVID-19.

“We are working on alternative dates and will announce them once they are finalized,” said Tina Czar, director of exhibits/events. “We hope to make the transition as easy as possible for all exhibitors and attendees. Health and safety will always be the top priority.”
