As the COVID-19 pandemic unfolded, Architect of the Capitol (AOC) staff began working through the protocols we needed to keep our employees, members, staff and visitors safe.

Resources were created and distributed to keep everyone informed of the changing environment. These resources include our Pandemic Operations Plan, which provides an in-depth look at the new normal, frequently asked questions for employees to navigate the pandemic, and new cleaning protocols implemented to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Here are a few photos that showcase these important cleaning protocols for vehicles, tools and office spaces.
