Employees

  • Follow all general guidance when working in the field, including in someone’s business or personal home.

  • Meetings, showings, appraisals, consultations, open houses,  etc. can occur in accordance with indoor event requirements.

  • Implement procedures for field-based employees to monitor for symptoms and report to management daily on health status. Refer symptomatic employees to the Colorado COVID Symptom Support tool (Additional Guidance).

  • When possible, post signage or give reminders for employees and customers on good hygiene and distancing practices.

  • Change gloves between customers.

  • Inquire whether third-party homes have symptomatic individuals or individuals who have contact with known positive cases and, if they do, cease any in-person interaction and limit any in-home activities to only those which are critical and can be done without risk to the service provider.

  • Maintain a detailed log of customer interactions to enable contact tracing (if ever needed).

  • Prioritize remote work and/or personal protective equipment for people at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19.
