Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information for Multifamily Professionals

Posted By: Russ Webb Coronavirus (COVID-19) ,

LATEST UPDATE - 3/27/2020 - 4:00PM:

We encourage our members to use the links below to navigate the information and resources that are out there. 

It is important to recognize that BAAA, NAA, NMHC and individual members are not health care professionals. The CDC and other qualified health officials should continue to be the primary source of current information and guidance. BAAA, NAA & NMHC are offering general, precautionary guidance from officials, and adding some common-sense guidelines for our industry in the interest of promoting a proper amount of caution at this time.

UPDATE - 3/16/2020:

The staff and leadership of BAAA are working on information to be distributed to our membership about the developing coronavirus situtation and share ideas on best practices for property management.

Currently, all BAAA events through the end of March have been postponed and we are looking at the schedule for April following the advice of the CDC and state of Florida. Committee meetings will be held virtually and we are evaluating what education we can deliver via webinar.

The National Apartment Association held a webinar (geared towards property management) last week.  A recording of that call may be made available to NAA members through their website here.  

As we learn more, we will post to this page as well as distribute through email and social media channels.

 

 

BAAA has been contacted by members inquring about the coronavirus impact on the industry and looking for resources for information and/or preparation.

The main source of information for the coronavirus (COVID-19) should be the Center for Disease Control (CDC) as they are the leading edge government organization monitoring the outbreak. You can visit the CDC main coronavirus page by using the button below, or see their flyer on what the public should do:

 

As apartment owners and operators prepare to mitigate and educate residents on potential exposure, The National Apartment Association (NAA) and National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC) have compiled an overview of suggested apartment owner preparations in anticipation of the potential spread of COVID-19.

In an effort to offer preliminary guidance and information to assist with preparations, NAA & NMHC have created pages on their websites with guidance for understanding what property managers need to know about the coronavirus outbreak.

It is important to recognize that BAAA, NAA, NMHC and individual members are not health care professionals. The CDC and other qualified health officials should continue to be the primary source of current information and guidance. BAAA, NAA & NMHC are offering general, precautionary guidance from officials, and adding some common-sense guidelines for our industry in the interest of promoting a proper amount of caution at this time.


Because this is a rapidly evolving situation, NAA will monitor developments and will continue efforts to secure guidance specific to the operation of rental housing from health officials. Additionally, NAA will update its website HERE with new information as it becomes available.

 

Again, it is important to refer to the CDC as the healthcare and wellness experts in matters like this. 

At present, CDC basic prevention information includes:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds. If soap and water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue away.
  • Frequently clean and disinfect touched objects and surfaces.
