Included in the order is social distancing of at least 6 feet from any person with whom you do not currently live.
The Governor stated, "These provisions will be enforced." He went on to say there will be civil fines and mandatory closures for businesses that are not in compliance with the order.
As a result of this most recent development,
GRAR recommends that all in our industry follow the rules of this order. During today's press conference, the Governor said that a real estate agent cannot show an apartment that is for rent while this order is in effect. We interpret this to also include no in-person showings of houses for sale while this order is in effect. All brokerage offices will also need to close by Sunday at 8pm.
If you have any questions about a specific circumstance that you are unsure whether or not falls within the category of "essential", please consult with your broker before taking any action that is contrary to this order. Contact the banks and attorneys involved for any closings you have coming up in the near term.
