In response to growing questions and concerns, BOMA International has released a short guide that provides information regarding the outbreak of a new respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus, termed “2019-nCoV.” Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has stated that the immediate health risk to the American public from 2019-nCoV is considered low at this time, it is important to prepare your building occupants and employees for this and other potential outbreaks. BOMA’s guide provides a foundation of knowledge to better understand the contagion and how to best prepare and react in a commercial building setting.
