Considerations for Owners and Operators of Multifamily Housing Including Populations at Increased Risk for Complications from COVID-19

The following guidance is provided to help owners, administrators, and operators of multifamily housing work together with residents, staff, and public health officials to create a safe living environment and prevent the spread of COVID-19. Public health actions needed to reduce the spread of COVID-19, such as social distancing, can lead some people to feel isolated and lonely or can increase stress and anxiety.  See full guidance here.
