Should have met in San Francisco and said they were doing residential construction work...

In the city of SF for the last few weeks since the start of the Shelter in Place Order construction work on luxury refurbishments of high end houses and duplexes etc has continued unabated because the City decided that construction work on residential properties was "essential" due to "homelessness" or something. Quite at variance with the State Executive Order.

Of course this decision by the Mayors Office and the City Depts has absolutely nothing to do with the multiple corruption scandals in the various City Depts and the blatant Pay To Play system that has been in play in the City since a certain Mayor (now ex-Mayor) came back to town after being term out of Sacramento. Or the Govs office ignoring this blatant breaking of Shelter In Place in SF because the Gov is a former Mayor of SF whose whole political career is due to the previous Mayor whose people still runs City Hall. Nah.

The loophole for continued residential construction was so blatantly corrupt that the City did tighten the rules a bit recently but so far the purely private residential construction work on multi million dollar units around the City has proceeded uninterrupted.

As I said, the IANA guys should have just put on overalls and claimed to be house painters or plumbers and they could have traveled unimpeded in San Francisco.
