Please be aware that the leadership of the Cincinnati Area Board of REALTORS® is closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus and how it is impacting our industry.  At this time, all CABR committee meetings, classes and events shall continue to be held as planned.

We ask all committee members and attendees to meetings and events to self-police their personal situation.  If you are feeling ill, stay home and do not attend.  If you have been out of the USA or in specific areas of the country where the Coronavirus has been detected, or have been in contact with ANYONE who has been out of the USA or in specific areas of the country where the Coronavirus has been detected, within the past two (2) weeks, please stay home and/or get tested.

For committee meetings, CABR can arrange for you to call into a meeting to participate.  Please contact your staff liaison for more information and arrangements.  For all classes, if you determine that you need to stay home, please CANCEL your registration prior to the class start time.  A refund will be issued to those who paid and CANCELED timely.

Thank you for your consideration and assistance.  We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates.

What preventative measures may be taken to reduce the risk of contracting and spreading coronavirus?

The same preventative measures recommended to prevent influenza are also effective in reducing the risk of contracting or spreading coronavirus. These measures include:

  • Staying home if you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or any other cold or flu-like symptom.
  • Washing your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water aren’t available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoiding close contact with anyone who is sick.
  • Cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces.
  • Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, or cough or sneeze into your sleeve.
