Our purpose at Equity Residential is creating communities where people thrive. We know that in order to thrive, however, our residents must first feel safe. In all eight of our markets from coast to coast, we are implementing changes in our communities as part of our Commitment to Health and Safety. While cleanliness and safety are always top priorities at Equity, we are focused on further enhancing our existing standards during the Covid-19 pandemic.


From door to door, in every space, in all aspects of our operation, we are implementing measures to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our residents and team members. Some of these practices are clearly visible and others are at work behind the scenes.
