REBNY, BOMA NY Issue New Guidelines to Support Tenants’ Return

With nearly two-thirds of Manhattan office employees expected to return to the workplace by September’s end, the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY), the Building Owners and Managers Association of Greater New York (BOMA NY) and a group of labor unions issued new guidelines Wednesday to support the safe and healthy return of employees, residents and building service workers to office and residential buildings. Click here for a summary.

The guidelines are based on the latest recommendations of governmental and public health authorities, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the New York State and City Departments of Health.

“As New York City moves forward on the path to long-term recovery, the ongoing return of office workers is driving a spirit of optimism and much-needed economic activity that will continue to increase over the coming months,” said REBNY president James Whelan.
