Disinfecting Premises for New Tenants

I’m getting a number of questions about how much you should do to disinfect premises before a new tenant takes possession. Related questions ask about proof someone is COVID negative, etc.

First, unless your tenant or tenant prospect waives their HIPAA rights, you cannot inquire into health issues.

Second, don’t freak out about COVID. It’s not the Black Death. It’s not chicken pox ripping through the New World. Common sense and good cleaning habits are sufficient. Here is an article about the CDC that provides guidance: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/reopen-guidance.html

What do you think?
