CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: CLASSES, MEETINGS & EVENTS Updates

Due to COVID-19, the Association staff is working remotely until further notice.  The safety of our members, community and staff remains of utmost importance as we navigate through this unprecedented health crisis. We will continue to operate under normal business hours which are Monday – Friday from 8:30am – 5pm and Stefanie will be picking up calls to the Association (860-892-2595) between 8:30 – 12:00 pm. Otherwise, you can still get the same great service by either leaving staff a voicemail or sending us an email. Our leadership will continue to monitor the situation and keep you posted on any developments or changes.

We will continue to monitor and reevaluate, as needed, and we will work to ensure that members’ needs are met. Information about the virus is changing rapidly, and we recommend that you stay up to date by visiting the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) website. All of us should take proactive actions to help prevent the spread of illnesses, including coronavirus and the seasonal flu, including these precautions in your daily interactions:

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or cough or sneeze into your sleeve.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) has also released “A Guide for REALTORS®” with useful information regarding how this may be impacting the real estate industry. 

Finally, stay informed, and use your best judgment. The situation is rapidly changing. ECAR will continue to update our members as new information becomes available.
