Resources for Dealing with Coronavirus/COVID-19


Facility owners are encouraged to monitor the Center for Disease Control (CDC) websites for best and recommended practices as well as current updates.  Owners are also encouraged to discuss the COVID-19  situation with their employees and take appropriate precautions. 

Each business owner will have to make tough decisions about things such as whether or not to keep the office open, require employees to report to work, charge fees on late rent, continue with collection efforts and whether or not to conduct foreclosure auctions. 

Some decisions will be judgment calls that only you, as the business owner, can make. Foreclosure auctions, especially when the sale was scheduled before this crisis, are not prohibited. That does not mean you necessarily should go forward, especially if you conduct in-person auctions and would attract a number of people to the property. If your auctions are online, you may be good to go. Unless the local or state authority takes action to mandate or prohibit, this will be a facility owner's judgment call to make.
