Bringing America back to work and restarting the economy will take planning and vision. Any movement in the direction toward reentering and repopulating buildings, businesses, and transportation systems must follow the health and safety guidelines set forth by science and data, the federal government, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and World Health Organization.

The National Institute of Building Sciences hosted a series of COVID-19 virtual town halls. These town halls placed subject matter experts before a wide audience of built environment professionals, members from the public and private sectors, and city, state, and federal government representatives. The guidance still may change from day to day, given the unique circumstances with where states stand on reopening.

In this town hall, our experts discussed the importance of healthy buildings as they relate to public health. We also learned why it’s essential to prioritize climate justice and the green energy sector.
The pandemic is forcing businesses and organizations to reevaluate future plans. Your company will want to be ready for anything — our experts covered what you can do to keep your staff and employees safe as the nation continues with the process of reopening for business.
In this town hall, industry experts discussed best practices to prepare and close out spaces used for COVID-19 patients. Our panel also gave detailed advice on sanitation of buildings and how to address mental health challenges as people plan to reenter facilities, convention centers or hotels used to house COVID-19 patients or medical personnel. Your company may need to conduct business at one of these convention centers or hotels in the future. If you plan to visit or stay at a property that could have been affected, learn the steps taken to keep future attendees or guests safe and ease your customers or employees’ anxiety.
