President's Letter

New York State Association of Home Inspectors (NYSAHI)
Presidents Letter  April 1st 2020
An Update from us on COVID-19

You are Essential.

Today Empire State Development reversed direction today and effective immediately: residential and commercial showings along with back office real estate work, appraisal services, and home inspections are essential real estate functions.

As you go out there please remember to comply with the guidance and directives for maintaining a clean and safe work environment issued by the Department of Health and every business, even if essential, is strongly urged to maintain social distance to the extent possible.

These are confusing time. This change was given at the same time that we are being asked to stay home as much as possible. I am encouraging all home inspectors to ensure that safety is first. Yeah, I know, you always do. You know how to be safe. But these are special times and lives are at stake.

It is up to each of you to decide how you will run your business and keep everyone safe.

Annie-Laurie Hunter
NYSAHI President
