3/24: Social Distancing and Buildings

Governments around the world are racing to control the spread of the coronavirus. Essential steps include careful hand-washing and urgent and comprehensive “social distancing” to minimize all unnecessary interpersonal contact. Slowing the transmission of COVID-19 provides additional time to those who are on the front lines of the battle against the disease and helps “flatten the curve” of the outbreak; during a pandemic, time is a precious and life-saving gift. Building management and operational strategies can support and complement comprehensive social distancing measures. In this ULI webinar, hear from experts in infectious disease, healthy buildings, and pandemic planning.
