Guides and Checklists
This section provides owners and managers with checklists, best practice guides, tools and model documents that will simplify your search for the best information on COVID-19 for building operations.
IMPROVING OCCUPANT SAFETY IN BUILDINGS
Drawing from guidance issued by health agencies and industry organizations, this guide provides property professionals with timely recommendations for building systems. While there is no single “one-size-fits-all” solution for all building types and systems, the guidance found in this resource can help commercial owners and operators determine the best strategies and technologies to deploy in their buildings now and in the months ahead. This will assist you in keeping building occupants safe and healthy while mitigating risk.
ELEVATOR PROGRAMMING FOR SOCIAL DISTANCING
As building owners respond to the new state and county pandemic requirements for social distancing, elevator equipment may assist building owners in regulating social distancing. Check out our short guide to possible options for your elevator equipment.
BOMA/GLA has developed signage guidance to assist owners in complying with local and state COVID-19 requirements for those entering buildings. See our model sign for use in common areas and with tenants.
