Community Update
IRET's communities have continued operations in all material respects. The Company has implemented virtual leasing and tour technologies, electronic and telephonic servicing of resident requests and work orders; the Company continues to practice social distancing for emergency repairs.

"We are first and foremost taking care of the health and safety of our residents and our team members. Our mission is to provide a great home, and our teams have demonstrated that they can build strong communities even in a remote-working and virtual world," said Mark O. Decker, Jr., IRET's President and Chief Executive Officer.

Operating Performance Update
Through April 20, the Company has collected 96.9% of historical average monthly collections for the month of April 2020. Additionally, the Company has extended rent deferral payment plans to residents experiencing hardship due to COVID-19 and approximately 1% of April rent charges have been deferred through this program. As of April 20, 2020, same-store occupancy was 95.3%, and the Company has seen an increase in resident retention.
