Coronavirus and the Public Works Community

APWA is closely following the spread of coronavirus and its effects on our communities. Because many of you are on the front lines and in many cases are first responders, it is important for you to have the resources and information to respond.

Protecting & Leading People During Reopening of Government
December 16th, 2020 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Central
Reopening government facilities for employees and the public after a pandemic is more than just unlocking doors. Leaders must consider the safety of everyone that enters the building, and safety requires planning. This panel will discuss challenges and innovations related to facility cleaning as well as the leadership required to open government facilities to the public and employees.

Share Your Experience

  • Join the APWA Public Works COVID-19 Discussion Board to share experiences, ask questions of your colleagues, and learn how other communities are addressing the coronavirus.
  • Share a video about how your department is addressing community needs and services. Your experience will  assist APWA’s advocacy efforts as we can then share that information with Congressional members so they have a true understanding of public works as "first responders."
  • Take a quick survey to let the federal government know how to better assist you and your community.
