Best Practices & Guidance for Reopening

Posted By: Wesley Masters News ,

From the NAA: 

Large gatherings are a new concern for multifamily housing operators. Pools, fitness centers, clubhouses, dog parks, theaters, playgrounds and other amenities frequently attract large groups, a scenario at odds with current guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concerning stemming the spread of the COVID-19. While the excitement of re-opening amenity spaces is palatable among many residents, it’s important to proceed with extreme care and caution.

The safety of employees and residents should be at the forefront of decision-making. Recently the White House released guidance from the reopening businesses. However, multifamily housing is unique and other advice to take into consideration should include recommendations from health officials, local jurisdictions and relevant authorities and organizations as they release and refine their own reactivation plans. In addition to these sources, this document is meant to serve as a basis for guidance around re-opening office and amenity spaces within your own company.
