COVID-19 Notice
To: Owners and Managers of Multifamily Housing Projects

On Sunday, March 22, Dr. Amy Acton, MD, MPH, Director of the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), issued an order, entitled "Order that All Persons Stay at Home Unless Engaged in Essential Work or Activity." The order includes exemptions that may apply to individuals working at multifamily housing developments or who otherwise may work with residents at properties financed by the Ohio Housing Finance Agency (OHFA). Sections of particular relevance to the management and operations of multifamily housing include, but are not limited to, Section 8 and Section 12 (d), (s) and (t). We encourage our partners to review the order thoroughly and if necessary, consult counsel when determining which staff are engaged in performing essential government functions or other essential work or activities.
