COVID-19 Updates & Resources

COVID-19 Updates

In an effort to limit potential exposure to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), AASET leadership has decided to cancel all events, in-person classes and fundraisers until further notice. We are all in this together, and we thank you for your patience in these challenging circumstances. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) notes that there is likely to be widespread transmission of COVID-19 in the United States at some point, though there is currently not widespread circulation in most U.S. communities. The World Health Organization (WHO) is now characterizing COVID-19 as a pandemic. That term does not change the assessment of the severity of the disease, but rather its spread in significant levels in a significant number of countries.

We are not public health experts. We are providing these resources to allow members to access trusted sources in one convenient location. We recommend that you look to the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Texas Department of State Health Services and your local public health authorities for information and tips on minimizing your risk, recognizing symptoms and suggested treatments for COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by the novel coronavirus.

The Texas Apartment Association has assembled resources and reminders for rental housing professionals operating in the state. They are monitoring this situation closely in Texas and will continue to provide updated resources and information as warranted.

The National Apartment Association understands that affiliates, members and residents may have concerns about how apartment communities should address the virus and, in an effort to offer guidance and information to assist with preparations, they have compiled the following material from official sources.
