  38. 38. Accessibility All existing “public accommodation” facilities (including; hospitals, theaters, retail, restaurants, offices where the public will visit, etc.) are bound by ADA’s “readily achievable barrier removal” requirement, and are therefore legally required to do anything they reasonably can to remove physical barriers to accessibility at any time in the facilities life, regardless of whether renovation or remodeling is underway. GMU FM-403: Class Six – Env. & ADA Issues Accessibility Issues (ADA) Public Accommodation
  39. 39. Accessibility A public entity must ensure that individuals with disabilities are not excluded from services, programs, and activities because existing buildings are inaccessible. State or local government programs, when viewed in their entirety, must be readily accessible. This standard is known as “program accessibility” . Public entities do not necessarily have to make each of their existing facilities accessible. GMU FM-403: Class Six – Env. & ADA Issues Accessibility Issues (ADA) Program Accessibility (Govt.)
