The Mono County EOC legal position continues to be that the California State Governor’s list of essential jobs found on the California Coronavirus (COVID -19) Response page (https://covid19.ca.gov/) is the definitive list they are bound to follow (https://covid19.ca.gov/img/EssentialCriticalInfrastructureWorkers.pdf).
Effective April 28, 2020, real estate has been added to the list in Sector 13, number 12, and reads: “Residential and commercial real estate workers, limited to scheduled property viewings to a potential buying party. This does not extend to open-house viewings, nor viewings with more than one buying party at a time."
