Coronavirus Information for HUD Participating Housing Counseling Agencies
Earlier this week, HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson was added to the White House Coronavirus Task Force. All federal agencies are working aggressively on a multi-layered, cross-agency public health response to this evolving situation.
While the risk of infection for Americans remains low, the Office of Housing Counseling is encouraging housing counseling agencies to make the information below available to both employees and clients:
- What you need to know about Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
- Stop the Spread of Germs
- Symptoms of Coronavirus Disease 2019
- What to do if you are sick with Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Stakeholders are reminded to ensure that their responses remain faithful to obligations under the Constitution, Fair Housing Act, and related regulations. Exigencies associated with important and timely response to issues surrounding COVID-19 are not the basis for unlawful discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability, or familial status.
