COVID-19 Resources for the Fenestration and Glazing Industry
Updated: November 5, 2020
During the COVID-19 crisis, FGIA is committed to providing important resources and news related to the pandemic and its ever-evolving health and economic implications. This page serves as a centralized resource for updated COVID-19 information specific to the fenestration and glazing industry.
Legislative and Regulatory Updates
FGIA hosts two groups on LinkedIn with the intent of aggregating important information for our members and the industry.
The FGIA Legislative and Regulatory Forum is available exclusively to members and provides daily opportunities to identify and discuss legislative and regulatory issues impacting the fenestration and glazing industry, including posts addressing the pandemic.
The FGIA LinkedIn group is open to the public and also includes timely updates related to the pandemic, including relevant webinars and industry news.
State Openness Scores
MultiState has developed a guide to condense state openings and closures into one easy-to-understand “openness score” in order to compare states to one another. States are evaluated based on 11 factors, and the data is updated daily. (Disclaimer: FGIA does not endorse or verify this content.)
Aura Vision's Lockdown Tracker provides business leaders with a view of quarantine timelines and typical durations as the situation evolves. This tool visualizes how past and current lockdowns are unfolding using publicly available information but cannot be used to predict when exactly each lockdown will end.
During the FGIA Virtual Summer Conference, a series of panels addressed lessons learned for manufacturing operations during COVID-19, as well as an economic outlook and financial relief programs for the U.S. and Canada. The FGIA Virtual Fall Conference included Council related forums as well as timely industry sessions on safety awareness, commercial design trends and how to influence people.
