Some valuable resources:

Under the recently issued sector guidelines for Reopening (May 20th), note that almost all of them have a category for "Ventilation" - which states that these businesses/offices/facilities are to:

Increase ventilation rates and increase the percentage of outdoor air that circulates into the system where possible.

And for restaurants, which as of right now will be for outdoor only dining, it still says that this would apply to indoor operational areas like the kitchen, etc.

Here are the sector rules:

Also, for CHCC members (especially those that may hold P licenses), DPH has recently issued some Return to Service Guidance for Building Water Systems, including hot water tanks and boilers.  Link below:

No need to reinvent yourself, as many businesses are finding new opportunities during the coronavirus crisis - you just simply need to market who you are and what you do! THIS IS YOUR INDUSTRY! CHCC is marketing our contractor members! Make sure your member profile on www.chcca.net is up to date. HVAC Systems Should Be Checked Before Buildings Reopen. Your home system should be serviced too. HVAC contractors are more than heating and cooling, they are your indoor air quality and home comfort professionals. When was the last time you had your ducts cleaned? Filter changed? See the link below for a list of licensed Connecticut contractors.

LOOKING AHEAD...
During these times of crisis, golfing is a fantastic way to get away from it all and get into the fresh air of the outdoors. Golf provides a pathway to better health for the individual – it reduces anxiety, decreases the effects of depression, brings stress levels down, & offers therapeutic benefits for the golfer. And, above all else, golfing is one of the best social distancing sports during this time and as we know... CHCC's tournament is a SELL OUT year after year! CAPACITY IS LIMITED - RESERVE YOUR FOURSOME TODAY!
