We just moved back into out place after 4 months out due to major works.
Of course the builder wants to carry on. Theoretically,for the most part would probably be fine as long as you can socially-distance. But a major build never goes theoretically, and is stressful at the best of times. Sh!t will go wrong, even without a global pandemic thrown in. I would prob try to postpone if possible. We had to move back in for financial reasons (as you say) despite it not all being done, even though the 'plan' (with contingency) was that everything would be done well ahead of our 4 month timeframe.
I would think things will be delayed, even if there's not an imposed lockdown. Also, the added stress of worrying that there might be is something you don't need I would suggest.
Not what you want to hear I'm sure, as I know it's a big step to make the call, but I'd postpone if possible....
