NFDA ALERT – GSA & Coronavirus
March 13, 2020

The GSA has taken various measures to address the Coronavirus and its impact on its leased properties, its Lessors, tenant agencies, service providers and all those potentially affected. The guidelines include those agencies that have independent leasing authority. The GSA will be communicating with its’ Lessors by letter in the coming days.

For further information that will answer many questions, since it contains frequently asked questions on GSA activities to enhance safety and health in federally occupied spaces in response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus):

The GSA, through their regional offices, will make contact with its’ Lessors to explain the measures that will be undertaken to protect the health and safety of federally occupied properties. The regional offices will be providing hand sanitizers to be placed at entrances, cafeterias, and common areas at no cost to Lessors. We understand that additional cleaning will be reimbursable.  Refer to GSA Pricing Desk Guide.

Lessor’s and/or their property managers will be contacted to help facilitate these measures.  For further information about the Coronavirus, refer to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Situation Summary
