COVID-19 Re-opening tools & resources 
AIA convened a virtual charrette with architects and experts in public health, engineering, and facilities management to develop guidance for building re-occupancy. Input from the charrette led to a new Building Risk Management Plan Worksheet, enhanced Re-occupancy Assessment Tool, and expanded ArchMap.
AIA Re-occupancy Assessment Tool which provides a framework of strategies for re-opening buildings. Informed by authoritative sources (CDC, WHO, OSHA, etc.) and public health experts, the tool includes baseline parameters for re-occupancy, architectural and engineering strategies, and administrative policies that promote the health, safety, and welfare of the public while creating opportunities for non-essential facilities to provide services.
How AIA contracts address the COVID-19 pandemic
For the foreseeable future, the design and construction industry may experience considerable disruptions, such as material shortages, construction delays, work stoppages, and suspended and terminated projects due to the coronavirus pandemic. This article provides some tips on how to handle project delays, suspensions, and terminations with AIA documents, and also provides a list of some insurance issues to consider.

Prometric Operations and Social Distancing

As Prometric test centers return to normal operations in compliance with local guidelines, please be aware that test centers’ social distancing requirements may vary depending on location. Some test centers are now “fully open,” which may
mean a return to normal occupancy, where social distancing of six feet may not be maintained or required. More Information

Harnessing the passion of our Members and the broader design community, AIA National is taking steps to advance racial justice and equality in our organization, in our profession, and in our communities.
