COVID-19: Open Houses and Showings

Yesterday, the Association sent out information regarding Broker Tour and Open Houses, and in following with the policies and the mission statement of the Association, we gave the recommendation that you heed the direction of your local, state, and national governmental entities regarding the COVID-19 outbreak.

Based on the March 16 directive to Shelter in Place until April 7, we strongly recommend that you do NOT hold Open Houses or Broker Tours, but consider other alternatives using technologies to host "virtual showings," like video chat on your mobile phone, so clients can experience an open house as if they were in person.

By clicking below, you may view the final order of the Shelter in Place for Alameda County, which states: "Order of the Alameda County Health Officer to "Shelter in Place." Violation of or failure to comply with this Order is a misdemeanor punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both. (California Health and Safety Code § 120295, et seq.)"

We also suggest you continue to seek the advice of your broker.

This is an ever-changing situation and your Association and MLS are here for you during their normal business hours: M-F, 9 am - 5 pm.

Bridge AOR: Call 510-848-4288 or email

bridgeMLS: Call 925-363-2333 or email

Thank you,

Eric Wong, 2020 President & DaVina Lara, CEO
