Maryland REALTORS® has issued updated guidance for REALTORS® in regard to masks and vaccines.

For those who are not fully vaccinated, the CDC encourages these individuals to get vaccinated. In Maryland, you can visit this site to find the nearest vaccination location. Until an individual is fully vaccinated, the CDC strongly advises that all precautions remain in place, which includes wearing a mask and social distancing.

In Maryland, Governor Hogan has lifted the mask mandate, except within healthcare settings, public transportation, and schools. Per the Governor’s Office, those who are fully vaccinated may feel free to resume normal activities. Businesses across the state are free to set their own policies regarding masks and other precautions. In addition, local jurisdictions may, and have, established guidelines that are different from the Administration’s.

Maryland REALTORS® has issued updated guidance on vaccine distribution for REALTORS® across the State of Maryland. REALTORS® were deemed “essential” workers in March 2020, and those who are considered high risk are being given priority in the vaccine rollout. According to Maryland REALTORS®, individuals “who are NOT 65+ years of age; NOT currently receiving hospital treatments; or NOT diagnosed as having a critical condition are expected to be included in the next phase of vaccinations, Phase 2. Phase 2 includes people ages 16-64 who are at increased risk of COVID-19 illness due to comorbidities, as well as essential workers in critical utilities and other sectors.”

Their guidance continues, “it is important to remember that obtaining a vaccine is still based on local vaccine supply. Depending upon your age and any underlying health conditions, you may already be in a higher or more favorable classification, eligible for vaccination.”

As the statement suggests, the situation and prioritization of REALTORS® in the vaccine rollout does vary by county and is subject to change based on availability. FCAR is in the process of working with government officials to obtain additional detail on where real estate professionals may fall in the vaccine rollout in this region. As it stands, the county has not updated its previous language on prioritization.
