COVID-19 – Resources and Guidelines


Share Your Emerging Practices

If your facilities organization has a procedure, guideline, case study, or emerging practice related to fighting or minimizing the spread of COVID-19, please send your document or web link and a short description to communications@appa.org. We will share your work with fellow educational facilities professionals.






Join your facilities colleagues for a weekly panel discussion and Q&A on the shared campus responses and guidance on COVID-19. Held every Friday 12:30 – 2:00 p.m. Eastern.
