Open House and Showings Mask Requirement Update
The California Department of Public Health has revised its State Masking Guidance. Effective March 1, 2022, the current requirement that unvaccinated individuals mask in indoor public settings has been revised to a strong recommendation that all persons, regardless of vaccine status, continue indoor masking. This new guidance will affect real estate activities such as showings and open houses, unless a seller requires that masks be worn, then masks should be worn by all while inside the property.
However, universal masking will remain required in specified high-risk settings (which does not include real estate related activities) such as K-12 schools, public transport, emergency shelters, and health care settings. After March 11, 2022, the universal masking requirement for K-12 and childcare settings will terminate.
