Industry-related COVID-19 Updates and Resources:
As of June 15th, open houses are now permitted in NJ, but all parties must wear masks, practice social distancing and follow the indoor capacity limit of 25% of a building’s occupancy.
Yes, both the CDC and EEOC have determined that taking employees’ body temperatures is permissible. By extension and as a prudent practice, brokerage offices can take temperatures of their agents. This should be done using the least invasive method possible (preferably a digital thermometer) and we do not recommend maintaining records of employee temperatures.
All employers have a duty to comply with CDC, OSHA, EEOC and federal and state laws, such as providing for social distancing, providing PPE, intensifying cleaning, etc.
We do not recommend taking clients' temperatures or asking them to fill out questionnaires. Instead, the office could post a notice at the door stating that no one experiencing symptoms should enter. The notice could also ask all who enter wear a mask and practice appropriate social distancing.
