install additional hand sanitizing stations;

  • ensure residents know how to contact the board/management to address concerns.

A resident is returning to the building to be quarantined after a positive diagnosis of COVID-19. What can the board/management do?

Many boards have asked residents to advise the board/management of any positive diagnosis of COVID-19, if they are being sent home to be quarantined and/or if they are self-isolating due to potential exposure. The board/management should take steps to coordinate with such a resident to reduce the likelihood that the resident interacts with any other resident or staff (for example, using the service elevator or designated stairwell to get the resident to their suite) and that the common areas accessed by such a resident are immediately cleaned and properly sanitized.

Everyone has a role to play in "flattening the curve" and the board/management should take all reasonable steps to keep residents safe and secure in these uncertain times.
