With the ongoing coverage surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and its potential effects, it is HCD’s and Emerald’s top priority to keep our community safe and informed. With the HCD show seven months away, we do not foresee any changes at this time. We are actively planning HCD Expo & Conference for November 7-10, 2020 in Nashville, TN.
The HCD team is monitoring the situation daily and following the guidelines set-forth by our federal and local government and health agencies, and are in close, ongoing contact with local Nashville authorities. In addition, we are implementing control measures and best practices recommended by the CDC and local health officials around the show and on-site. Our focus is to keep attendees, exhibitors and the healthcare design community updated regularly.
The Center for Health Design has provided select resources to help healthcare facilities address near-term needs related to the current COVID-19 pandemic. While these resources were created to help minimize the impact of infections and transmittable diseases in healthcare facilities, much of the research and guidance is relevant and useful in any built environment.
ASID has curated the following links and resources to keep you informed about COVID-19 and its impact on your community, your businesses and your life. They have been separated into categories to help you narrow down your search for knowledge.
