Governor Holcomb at noon today released an Executive Order for Hoosiers to “stay at home” unless you are deemed an “essential” business.  BAGI’s proactive work with IBA and the Governor the past week to position the industry as “essential” seems to have paid off, as housing is deemed “essential infrastructure” on page 5.

Reference the complete Executive Order HERE.

A few highlights as it pertains to our industry:

#11 of the Order specifically defines home construction as essential business, allowing operations to continue.

#12 continues by stating that governments must perform services to support those defined essential businesses.

BAGI will continue working with the Governor’s office and IBA to address questions moving forward.  Stay tuned for more information as we receive it.
