COVID-19 Precautions for MURBs

Restricting access, visitation, and privacy concerns

Physical distancing requirements mean that managers may have to take action to discourage gatherings, such as shutting down common rooms and amenities. Residents may also be asked to refrain from social visiting. Viewing homes for sale or for rent should be done virtually. However, physical distancing must also take into consideration the needs of vulnerable residents who may depend on outside assistance. For example, people who are ill or those who are self-isolating to remain healthy may rely on friends, family members, or delivery personnel to obtain necessary goods and avoid non-essential trips. Thus, although physical distancing should be encouraged, limiting access to the building could be severely detrimental to some residents.

As building residents or managers become aware of COVID-19 or other illnesses in the building, there may be pressure to restrict movement in the building or identify ill cases. However, building management should be cautious of attempting to restrict the movement of ill people, except for shutting down common spaces or non-essential amenities, and furthermore must protect the privacy of these individuals. Local public health will manage the care and assessment of infected individuals and (typically) will inform building managers of additional measures only if it becomes necessary to do so.
