Response to COVID-19

Infrastructure NSW is leading cross-agency communication, monitoring and reporting of infrastructure-related COVID-19 impacts to ensure industry, unions and government receive consistent and factual information. 

The response to COVID-19 is constantly evolving and we are committed to providing clear leadership and information to industry based on the current health advice and relevant Public Health Orders.

Construction may resume in Greater Sydney from Saturday 31 July following a 2-week pause. Works can also resume at occupied residential premises subject to limited numbers on site and strictly no contact between occupants and workers. This does not include work in the identified LGAs of concern where urgent works only can be undertaken.

The pause was put in place on 19 July to reduce mobility and limit the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19. Since then, the NSW Government has worked closely with the construction industry and unions to develop a new COVID-19 Safety Plan for construction which mandates COVID safe practices on sites to keep workers and the community safe.

This work builds on measures many of the state’s construction sites already had in place, ensuring consistency right across the sector. They also complement general controls, such as mask wearing and restrictions of movement.

Infrastructure NSW will continue to provide guidance to industry as further information becomes available.

We are working closely with those across the construction sector, including with a number of industry associations and unions, and encourage you to seek advice from your representatives.

We strongly advise that anyone with the slightest of symptoms should get tested immediately and follow all NSW Health advice.
