Employees at Douglas Elliman offices across the country must now be vaccinated or face regular testing, sources say.
The brokerage, which has offices in New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Florida, California, Texas, Colorado and Massachusetts, became the latest to implement a vaccination policy on Monday, The Real Deal has learned.
Proof must indicate when the dosage was received and what type of vaccine was administered. Masks are still required in all of the firm’s public areas, though those working in private offices don’t have to wear them unless others are present.
Other brokerages have been rolling out updated vaccination policies for their employees and agents following the enforcement of the “Key to NYC” vaccination mandate, effective Sept. 13, which requires businesses in the city to check for proof of vaccination before allowing patrons to enter.
Proof of vaccination isn’t required in Corcoran’s South Florida offices, however, since it is not required at the city or state level there. The same goes for face coverings.
In-person attendance remains optional across all company-owned offices, Corcoran spokesperson Johnna Muscente said.
