The Federal Fair Housing Act (New York State and local human rights laws) prohibits housing suppliers from discrimination and that includes COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS).
It is a FAIR HOUSING VIOLATION to be treated differently or unfairly in housing if it is suspected that you have/had Coronavirus. It is a FAIR HOUSING VIOLATION if someone refuses to rent or evict you because they believe that based on your race, national origin or disability, you will become ill from the Coronavirus in the future.
Long Island Housing Services is a civil rights 501c3 nonprofit focused on fair housing. The Fair Housing enforcement and advocacy work for this training is supported through a grant from the Fair Housing Initiatives Program (American Rescue Plan) of the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development.
