Colorado's new Stay at Home Order Effective Today at 6 am, and of course Some HUMOR

By

I know many states have already had orders of "stay at home", and no essential services, some of which include real estate.    Until this morning, real estate was still on the list for essential services (and our economy).   When the new order came down, there was no mention of real estate, so our State Association were in touch with our Governor's office to get clarification.   at 11:35 am this morning, there was an updated order adding real estate services.  WHEW, hard to know when it is not spelled out!

 

 

We had a new Covid-19 addendum added, that was approved by the Colorado Bar Association, but not the Colorado real Estate Commission.

 

Our MLS shut off the ability to add an open house into the MLS, as the order states, this is not critical.

 

Checking with our title companies, there are performing closings, just differently.   Some will be doing on-line closings, some will have notaries, but one thing is unanimously - no one outside of the immediate clients will be allowed into closings.  No REALTORS, no lenders.

 

This new order put into place today will be in place until 4/11/2020.

 

 

Our at-risk neighbors and friends will still need our help, if we can, to bring essential groceries or supplies.   

 

 

 I know my nail person sent me a text letting me know they will again open May 1st, but we shall see if it is by then!   It could be an urgent visit!

 

 

I think as of right now, we have around 1,000 confirmed cases, and have just about caught up with the back-log of tests, and 19 deaths.

 

With having more time on my hands, have been texting clients, friends and service providers a message hoping they are safe, healthy and checking in on them.   Have had so many great responses, and it has been fun!  My photographer said he sure really appreciated checking in, and meant a lot to him!

 

Take care everyone, we WILL get through this, and soon (I sure hope) will be a distant memory.

Good afternoon Joan Cox - really love all of those pictures.  It is important for us to laugh through this.

Love the dog picture, Joan. I am, meanwhile, desperate for a manicure and a haircut! Couldn't get to them while recuperating from my cataract surgery and now paying the price as everything shut down right after. Our stay at home order is a week longer than yours (and as far as I know we've only had one death in NC)... no clue when my hair stylist or manicure place will be back in business.

Grant, I thought so too, as what I wrote was on a serious note, and can be a humorous person!

Nina Hollander UGH, I luckily got into my nail salon last Monday, but May 1st, my nails will be a WRECK.    Maybe wearing gloves may be a good thing?   I have snipped about 20 different FB photos, and some make me laugh REALLY loud!  Hope you are doing well!

Love the pictures Joan... we have been on Lock Down for a while and certainly considered non-esential... I'm just praying that soon we will be considered essential...

Those were funny Joan. Our stay-at-home order started today & will last at least the next three weeks. It's giving me the opportunity to do some tasks I've been putting off for a while. Stay safe & we'll all get through this together!

Hello Joan - although there is going to be an end to all of this, I don't know if putting a "date" on it is realistic at this point so keeping some humor about us, is a good - a very good - thing.  Stay healthy - stay safe - stay smiling(and positive).

Roy, we have an order that states we need to stay home unless you need to replenish groceries or pick up take-out food.

Debe, it does allow us some time for tasks at home that we had no time for before.

Brian England I have been working hard at doing 250 steps every hour, and also walking on the treadmill.   Anything to do, so we don't end up looking like that!

Michael Jacobs it is pretty serious, and why I inserted some funnies just to try and keep it light.   We do need some smiles/laughs every day!
