Take steps to protect others
Stay home if you’re sick
Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care. Learn what to do if you are sick.
Cover coughs and sneeze
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
Throw used tissues in the trash.
Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Wear a facemask if you are sick
If you are sick: You should wear a facemask when you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. If you are not able to wear a facemask (for example, because it causes trouble breathing), then you should do your best to cover your coughs and sneezes, and people who are caring for you should wear a facemask if they enter your room. Learn what to do if you are sick.
If you are NOT sick: You do not need to wear a facemask unless you are caring for someone who is sick (and they are not able to wear a facemask). Facemasks may be in short supply and they should be saved for caregivers.
Clean and disinfect
Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.

Take steps to protect yourself
Clean your hands often
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

ATLANTA MAYOR'S EXECUTIVE ORDER & IMPACT ON REAL ESTATE
As most of you are aware, the Mayor of Atlanta issued a "Stay in Place" Executive Order last night that will go into effect tonight at midnight and continue through the next 14 days. Upon review of the Order, the Atlanta REALTORS Association has reached out to the Mayor's office this morning for clarification regarding the impact on real estate services.
At this time, we have confirmed that real estate services are included under the "Professional Services" exemption mentioned in the Order. Residential real estate transactions can continue using social distancing precautions and sound judgement, however, remote working conditions are highly encouraged.
With that in mind, we encourage you to follow the intent of the Order as much as possible and conduct your business in a safe manner. We have created a page on our website to follow the decisions of our local municipalities, our counties, the state and national governments. This will be updated on a regular basis so please remember to visit or follow us on social media!
Stay up to date with the status of local government operations for each county here. All information is subject to change as we continue to monitor and make updates.
Know How it Spreads
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
As we go thru this difficult time in our country and around the world, just a quick note to let you know we are still available to assist you for your real estate needs. Fortunately, we can handle everything for you without having to meet in person via phone, fax, emails and online meetings.
We are Virtual Properties Realty and as the name says we can handle everything virtually for your real estate needs from document signing to virtual tours of your home so that we can limit the number of people entering your home during this time.
Let us know if you or anyone you know needs help during this difficult time. I know many people are losing jobs and may need help selling or purchasing a new home as you might find yourself or know someone else that might need to downsizes in this trying time.
Please feel free to reach out to me anytime to answer all your real estate questions and needs.
Have a great week and stay safe!
