Yes Susan we will be in touch. Just making sure we get some finalized information. HUD hasn't released anything formally yet bit we are hearing some good things from our national TA folks about what is in the waiver. Hopefully have some formal guidance today.

my understanding is that masks do not prevent you from getting covid19, it keeps you from transmitting it.
