Tomorrow should see around 15,000 to 20,000 construction workers get back on site. Opening up part of the construction sector will be very welcome for those firms and workers directly involved in building residential homes.

Presumably, the decision is on the basis that construction sites are safe and are not major spreaders of Covid-19. And in fact all of the data supports that reality.
