The world health community continues to monitor closely the emergence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the disease it causes, named "coronavirus disease 2019" (COVID-19). At this time, no one knows how severe this outbreak will be. Given this uncertainty, and the fact that the seasonal influenza (flu) virus is also widespread, we are taking proactive steps to address a number of business concerns.

First and foremost, we want to continue to maintain a safe workplace, encourage our valued community residents to utilize practices that protect the health of family members and friends. We also want to ensure the continuity of business operations.  To that end, the company has contracted with a professional cleaning service to perform an extensive two step deep cleaning.  Within the last 24 hours, all Laffey Real Estate offices have undergone this essential service.  While we cannot eradicate every germ, we are confident that this activity will help reduce the unintentional spread of the virus. 

We ask that everyone cooperate in taking steps to reduce the transmission of communicable diseases. 

We are reminding you of the following:

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Wash your hands frequently with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Cover your mouth with tissues whenever you sneeze, and discard used tissues in the trash.
  • Avoid people who are sick with respiratory symptoms.
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces.

Of note, our senior management team has made a collective, albeit difficult, decision to temporarily close our branch locations in an effort to protect our employees, agents and of course the members of the communities we serve.  To that end, we have instructed our IT department to install remote software on all essential office personnel computers so as to continue with the business at hand. 

Currently, Open Houses are being scheduled at the behest of the Seller.  However, company initiated meetings where close proximity may put someone in danger of contracting the virus have been postponed. 

We are moving to a virtual platform to remotely schedule Closings, Lease Signings and other events deemed time sensitive or essential.  We are heeding the instructions from the CDC and other health care experts, taking every step possible to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

We know this is a difficult time.  Be mindful of the elderly and those with pulmonary or compromised health situations.  Check in (by phone) on older neighbors, family members and friends.  Use your common sense and discretion as you go about your everyday life. 

Laffey Real Estates wishes you safety and health.
