Special Session: COVID-19 and the ADA: Implications for Title II and Post-Secondary Education

Event Date/Time: 

Thursday, August 27th, 2020
2:00 PM EDT - 4:00 PM EDT




The COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated significant changes in how programs and activities are conducted and necessitated entities to make changes in their policies and procedures to address the risks and meet the local and state mandates to prevent transmission. This session will lay out the basics for analyzing how the ADA applies to the current pandemic and explore a variety of issues including voting, effective communication, emergency preparedness, public transportation, modifications to programs and services offered by local and state government entities, public health issues such as COVID-19 testing and face mask mandates and issues faced by administrators and students in post-secondary education settings.

The presenters encourage participants to submit questions in advance but will also take questions during the live session Q&A period. Please note that this is a 2 hour session.
