To the extent possible, inspection department members will perform inspections in unoccupied areas of buildings where no other persons are in the proximate areas, especially avoiding closed or confined spaces occupied by others. As necessary, inspections staff may meet with minimal personnel from builders/developers at the building site but must maintain extended distances from others and meet in open external spaces.
