COVID-19 Resources and News

AMCA is an International Association, and as such, we want to assist our membership to the extent possible and as appropriate based on region. With our headquarters in the United States, it is more easily within our reach to provide domestic updates, and we doubt that guidance we could provide exceeds that which our international members are already receiving from their local government and law enforcement agencies. As such, it is the recommendation of AMCA that international members continue to adhere to local guidelines and regulations.

These resources will stay updated at least daily to assist AMCA members with current information. As we are all receiving a large volume of updates right now, AMCA will decline providing daily emails relating to this information; rather, we would recommend that members interested in this information simply refer to the website and our social media pages as needed.

All of us at AMCA hope for the best for you, your company, and your family during this time.



Guidance from Industry Societies and Associations
