NIBS COVID-19 Virtual Town Hall: Mental Health and Sanitation of COVID-19 Facilities

May 19, 2020   |   10:00 AM – 12:00 PM ET
Virtual Meeting

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. Topics included:

  • Re-occupancy (spaces used to house COVID-19 patients and/or medical personnel)
  • Sanitation recommendations
  • Addressing mental health issues around reentering these spaces
