COVID-19 SAFETY GUIDELINES FOR BUILDERS TO FOLLOW

Safety of members working in homes as well as attendees touring the homes is of upmost importance. The safety requirements listed below are designed to help builders reduce the risks of exposure to COVID-19 (coronavirus) during the event.

• Stay home if you are sick - have a partner, employee or realtor show the home
• Strongly encourage those working in the home to wear a facemask
• Hang up signs at the entrance promoting 6’ social distancing while in the home
Signs will be handed out during material pick up, but templates are also provided below
• Builders will receive one bottle of hand santizer for each home (containing at least 60% alcohol) 
Place these bottles in the kitchen for attendee use
• Offer consumers one way in and another way out to maintain social distancing guidelines
(consumers enter through the front door and leave through the garage while carrying shoes throughout the tour)
• Consumers will be advised that socks must be worn to enter a home to help traffic flow
• Leave lights on and doors open to minimize contamination (if weather allows)
• Disinfect frequently touched areas (countertops, door knobs, stair rails, etc...)
• Use personal protection equipment (gloves, eye protection) when disinfecting
