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.

ASHRAE releases guidebook covering HVAC considerations for alternative care sites

From the ASHRAE Press release:

"As many communities are setting up alternative care sites (ACS) in response to spikes in COVID-19, the ASHRAE Epidemic Task Force announced the availability of the Alternate Care Site HVAC Guidebook, which was developed by the ASHRAE Alternate Care Sites Task Force.

"Specific recommendations include guidance for design requirements, air flow, filtration, space conditions and methodology for identifying which mechanical system approaches may be pursued knowing that most ACS must prioritize certain features due to limited time, budget, and site characteristics.
