On March 23, 2020 Governor Ralph Northam (Va.) issued Executive Order Fifty-Three which orders the closure of certain non-essential businesses, bans all gatherings of more than 10 people, and closes all K-12 schools for the remainder of the academic year. This statewide order, issued to reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19 in Virginia, goes into effect at 11:59 PM on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 and will remain in place until 11:59 PM on Thursday, April 23, 2020.
“Although business operations offering professional rather than retail services may remain open, they should utilize teleworking as much as possible. Where telework is not feasible, such business must adhere to social distancing recommendations, enhanced sanitizing practices on common surfaces, and apply the relevant workplace guidance from state and federal authorities.”In order to comply with the governor’s orders, Vignettes Home Staging:
- Has suspended all occupied consultations and stagings until further notice
- Added extra requirements and increased frequency for disinfecting surfaces and deep cleaning throughout the day for all stages and de-stages. We will wipe down with disinfectant: any door knobs, light switches and surfaces we touch in the homes we are working in.
- Will only stage vacant homes. We ask that homeowners, agents, sub-contractors, cleaners, and/or painters not be present at the time of staging.
- We will continue to follow updates and protocols recommended by the CDC, state and local Departments of Public Health, and World Health Organization to best ensure the safety of our guests and team members.
