The New York City Regional Office of the AAA-ICDR complies with state and local
COVID-19-related orders and guidance, and we ask that all visitors to our hearing facilities do so as well.

Important Safety Protocols and Procedures

Prior to opening, the office was thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. Hearing rooms are limited to one hearing per day, and all hearing rooms are cleaned daily.

Stations throughout the hearing facility supply hand-sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

Appropriate social distancing must be maintained in all areas of the office and hearing rooms. Signage is in place to remind you of this requirement.

A mask or cloth face covering (over mouth and nose) is required in all common areas, including restrooms, and when social distancing cannot be maintained.

An occupancy limit is set for each of the hearing rooms and common areas to allow for social distancing.

Acrylic partitions are available upon request.

Planning Your Hearing

The AAA-ICDR aims to make available as many of our valued amenities as possible given current state and local COVID-19 guidance. Please contact us to find out more about which amenities are currently available.
