The new Public Health Order issued on Thursday, April 23rd eases restrictions placed on real estate.  Below is the part of the order that refers to real estate:

B. Businesses:
1) Real estate:
  • Virtual showings and dealings need to be the first line approach to real estate viewing and transactions.
In order to limit possible exposure:
  • No more than two visitors at a time representing the buyer and one individual showing the unit are allowed.
  • The current residents of the unit should not be present.
  • Cloth facial coverings must be used, and proper hand-washing and disinfection practices must be performed for in person showings.
