During the pandemic, offices moved to remote working, restaurants built “outdoor” dining areas, plastic screens were installed, and service lines were stretched out to accommodate social distancing. In our haste to build barriers to the spread of the virus, the needs of people with disabilities were often ignored and, in many cases, new barriers were created. This program will explain the requirements of the ADA and how we can create safe environments for all.

Learning Objectives:

1.  Summarize the requirements of the ADA for temporary features.
2.  Identify architectural barriers created as part of pandemic response.
3.  Analyze requirements for accessibility as related to these architectural changes.
4.  Create solutions that address business needs, pandemic response and the needs of people with disabilities.
