The Fraternity’s insurance partner, Favor & Company, created a comprehensive, detailed resource for individual members, chapters, and house corporations, in regards to planning for a fall reopening. It not only addresses how to prepare for and respond to a pandemic, but also provides useful links to products and other resources for chapters and house corporations.

There are also 7 different Standard Operating Procedures, covering topics such as facility reopening and maintenance; health surveillance and reporting; PPE; cleaning; and isolation and quarantine procedures.
