Real Estate Showings Prohibited for Certain Travelers to New York State

Real estate licensees should not conduct showings where any party entered New York after 12:01a.m. on June 25, 2020 from one of the “impacted jurisdictions”.  This includes not only buyers/tenants but also sellers or occupants of seller’s property that will be shown.  
 
NYSAR strongly recommends that as part of a screening process, licensees should inquire if their client/customer has entered New York from another state on or after 12:01 a.m., June 25, 2020.  If the individual is from an “impacted jurisdiction,” the showing should not occur pursuant to the quarantine protocols.
 
It is likely that any real estate licensee that knowingly conducts a showing contrary to the guidance contained in this document may be exposing themselves to various actions (legal, DOH discipline etc.) as well as exposing themselves and others to potential COVID-19 exposure.  Licensees should inquire with their broker as to how such screening should be implemented.

The current “impacted jurisdictions” are listed online and updated by the New York State Government at https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory
