Explore best practices in housing co-ops during this Covid 19 pandemic from 3 perspectives:

  • Public Health perspective
  • Legal perspective
  • Insurance perspective

We recognize that we won’t be able to answer specific questions such as when the vaccine will be ready, whether there will be a second wave and if so, when?

We will address the challenges we face in our operations while respecting the public health recommendations, following the legal requirements and moderating the risk from an insurance perspective including members’ meetings and the delivery of member services.
