"If at all possible, maintain insurance for the superintendents you lay off. They have made a sacrifice leaving families for months on end, and have spent an excessive amount of time on sites above and beyond a normal working week to make sure the reputation of the company is well looked out for. Do them and their families a favor and pay their insurance for at least a few months until they are either back on the road for you or find another job."
