As directed by the public health authorities, the Commission de la construction du Québec (CCQ) is adopting measures to avoid the spread of the virus and to protect the health of its employees and its clientele.

Situation on construction sites

Site visits are taking place as usual. The CCQ would like to remind you that no provision in Act R20 gives it the power to require sites to close.

Cancellation of upgrading activities

All of the CCQ’s upgrading activities are suspended as of now, and until further notice. The CCQ is aware of the inconvenience that this situation might cause and will do everything in its power to minimize its impacts.

Practise basic hygiene measures: The best prevention

Practising good hygiene remains the best way to avoid the spread of a virus as much as possible. These measures are the following: 

• Wash your hands frequently in warm running water for at least 20 seconds
• Use an alcohol-based disinfectant if you don’t have access to water and soap
• Avoid touching your face with your hands
• If you are coughing or sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with your arm (the inside of your elbow) 
• If you use a paper tissue, throw it out as quickly as possible and wash your hands afterward
