COVID-19 Virtual Town Hall Webinar Series

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 is hosting a series of COVID-19 virtual town halls. These town halls place 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 may change from day to day, given the unique circumstances with where states stand on reopening.
