What Does Executive Order 53 Mean for REALTORS®?
March 23, 2020
Earlier today, Governor Ralph Northam released Executive Order 53, in which he lays out specific direction to businesses across Virginia. While some businesses are now required to close for the next 30 days, YOUR real estate business is not. While you will still be able to conduct business, he did stress the need to follow the 10-person prohibition on gatherings, stress the need to telework and offer your services as remotely as possible and, if the need arises to conduct business in person, to do so following the CDC-recommended rules dictating social distancing, cleaning, and other means. Virginia REALTORS® is strongly recommending that members stop holding in-person open houses. REALTORS® should be prudent and show the Governor that we mean business in helping to flatten the curve, or he will be forced to take additional action.
