COVID-19 Resources and Guidance

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is closely monitoring the outbreak of a novel coronavirus (COVID-19). As of March 18, 2020, 7,038 cases of coronavirus are confirmed in the United States. The Affordable Housing Association of Indiana believes it is prudent for its members and affiliates to be prepared for incidents involving COVID-19 should they occur. We have compiled the following material from official sources and we will make updates with new information as it becomes available.

How to protect yourself and prepare for COVID-19 in your community

The best thing you can do in the face of COVID-19 is to take precautions to protect yourself, your family, and your community:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; dry hands with a clean towel or air dry hands.
  • Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer when soap and water are unavailable.
  • Cover your mouth with a tissue or sleeve when sneezing or coughing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick.
  • Clean “high-touch” surfaces daily. These include counters, tabletops, doorknobs, light switches, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, desks, and tablets.
