Investors must make adjustments to construction schedules or temporarily suspend projects that are not urgent.

For urgent projects that must be completed on time, contractors and construction units must take preventive measures to ensure the health and safety of their workers.

They are required to make a commitment to the prevention and control of COVID-19 and send it to district-level people's committees where their project is located.

In addition, they must manage their foreign experts and workers who have returned from COVID-19-hit regions and notify local authorities who will implement quarantine procedures.

They must also limit night shifts and crowds at construction sites.

A working shift must have no more than 20 workers, and equipment and machinery must be disinfected after each shift.

All workers must have their body temperature checked before and after each shift. If the temperature is above 37.5 degrees Celsius, it must be immediately reported to local health centres.

They must wear face masks, wash their hands with sanitizer frequently, and keep a minimum distance of two metres from others during their working time.
