*The following article is meant to help community association leaders by providing some plans and information about handling Covid-19 (also known as the Novel Coronavirus or Sars-Covid-2) and is not meant to be a full emergency plan or provide health care advice. Please continue checking with primary sources (such as the CDC or WHO) for more immediate and fully up-to-date information. 

As COVID-19 outbreaks are appearing more and more in the news it's important that your community and the board members take every precaution to help reduce the spread of this virus. An outbreak could last for weeks or even months in your community. This can be especially true for those communities with communal spaces like elevators or shared gated entry systems. Depending on the severity of the outbreak, public health officials may recommend community actions to reduce spread of COVID-19. Local public health officials may make recommendations appropriate to your local situation, such as flexible sick-leave and telework policies and temporary school dismissals.
