In early 2020, the whole world came to a screeching halt as COVID-19 rapidly spread around the world. Many environmental projects were delayed or put on hold as we scrambled to figure out how to stop the spread of this deadly virus. Most private held companies and government organizations required their staff to work from home so that people were not spreading the disease at the office. But, how do we get our projects back up and running safely and what does it look like to have our staff back in the office while protecting everyone’s health. Health and safety is what our industry is built on and the speakers in this breakout session have learned several key things about COVID-19 this year.
