Affordable Housing Online is monitoring the federal government's response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak.
An extensive list of coronavirus resources for low-income households can be found here.
Because of COVID-19, many states and local governments have put in place guidelines or requirements about entering your apartment, to keep people safe from spreading the virus. Check with your local public health department on the rules in your area.
If there are no rules to enforce limited entry into your apartment during the COVID-19 pandemic, then suggest to your landlord to do remote virtual tours of the apartment. Also, in most cases, your landlord must give you at least 24-hours written notice of the visit. If the landlord insists on continuing to show your apartment to potential buyers, remind him to sanitize door handles or anything touched by the landlord or visitors, wear masks and keep at least six feet away from you. You should also sanitize too, before and after the visit. Also check your lease to see if there are any rules about access or entering your apartment.
