The article, “Is the Construction Industry Ready? Hurricane Prep in the Midst of the Pandemic,” written by Melinda (“Mindy”) S. Gentile, Partner and P&A’s Diversity and Inclusion Chair, and Jerry P. Brodsky, Partner and Director of P&A’s Latin American Practice, was published in the Daily Business Review/Law.com and GlobeSt.com on July 22, 2020.
Mindy and Jerry discuss how the development and construction industry has never had to prepare for a hurricane season while also dealing with the effects of an active pandemic, and what approach should be taken to prepare for both threats. They write, “Contractors cannot expect to have one plan for weather events and another for COVID-19, rather, this year, hurricane preparedness must be aligned with the demands brought about by COVID-19.” For more of their insights, and how to best prepare for the effects of both hurricanes and the pandemic, those with access can read the full article here.
