As the number of deaths from coronavirus passes 3,000, and the number of infections and deaths rise in the U.S., real estate investment managers are preparing for and implementing emergency procedures to deal with potential outbreaks within their networks.

But how are managers updating their policies surrounding travel? What are the triggers for restricting travel, worksite attendance or normal business responsibilities? How are they communicating updates in the midst of a global emergency that changes minute-to-minute?
