National Alert: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have recommended community use of cloth masks as an additional public health measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19. See page 2 for details


At the Center of Santa Barbara’s Cultural Conversation | www.VoiceSB.com


By Mark M. Whitehurst, PhD / VOICE

NEW POLICY IS HAS BEEN CREATED. Warned not to hoard masks by the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (who said they were unnecessary for the general public), the latest research is suggesting something else. COVID-19 apparently can be airborne. In addition to that, 25 percent of infected people do not show symptoms and everyone infected not yet showing symptoms, can spread the disease unwittingly to others. Wearing masks can help address this. The national discussion and debate on this issue led Eric Garcetti, the Mayor of Los Angeles, to call for everyone to wear masks and to use recommended safety measures for all activities outside the home, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday. Now the CDC is following along. The shortage of protective masks for health care workers remains a concern. Nearly everyone emphasizes that N95 and surgical masks should be saved for health care workers. The community response to the shortage has been to make homemade masks. Cloth masks are quite easy to make, and are also being donated to local clinics and Cottage Health. The needs of health care professionals is great. The cloth masks aren’t enough for all health care tasks so the CDC is continuing its call not to hoard protective gear or cleaners, so that the needs of health care workers and emergency personnel will be met. They are also calling on everyone to wear masks. That means that everyone could make a cloth and/or paper mask for themselves. The new normal, created by the COVID-19 pandemic, includes masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, and surface cleaners today, tomorrow, and into the future. This situation has been caused by known facts and the discovery of new information about COVID-19.

Locally, the County received a million masks this week for health care workers in preparation for the community’s needs in upcoming weeks. The nonprofit One805 has been raising funds to supply first responders in Santa Barbara County. While the Coronavirus is airborne, the level of risk is undetermined, according to research at the University of Nebraska Health Center, which was released this week and reported in the Omaha World Herald Thursday. “The study found high levels of contamination by the virus, detected by genetic testing on commonly used surfaces and in the air of patients’ rooms. Air samples from hallways outside of rooms where staff were moving in and out of doors also were positive… The study suggests that COVID-19 patients, even those who are only mildly ill, may create aerosols of virus and contaminate surfaces that may pose a risk of transmission,” the Herald wrote. The article also stated that researchers stressed the findings needed additional research and study to determine the risk of the airborne transmissions of the virus. Masks, which can easily be made at home have a range of effectiveness that depends on the layers of cloth used. The gold standard is the N95 and surgical masks which are designed to protect beyond a micron, which is the size of the coronavirus. These masks are made of melt-blown fabric, which stops particles even finer than a micron in diameter. But homemade cloth masks, with two layers of cotton and paper towel sandwiched in also serve as important antitransmission barriers. For an easy, non-sewing mask pattern, visit www.masks4all.co Handmade or designer crafted, if you have the virus or not, safety says put on a mask — like a seatbelt or a child car seat — it just makes sense.

Scientists provide essential COVID-19 testing supplies to Cottage Health System


By Sonia Fernandez / The UC Santa Barbara Current

N SUPPORT OF EFFORTS TO BATTLE THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC LOCALLY, UC Santa Barbara researchers have donated essential supplies to Cottage Health System, to aid with testing for the novel coronavirus. Professors Max Wilson, Carolina Arias, Kenneth Kosik, and Diego Acosta-Alvear, all from the university’s Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology, have donated 600 “reactions” to Cottage Hospital to help the medical facility cope with the fastspreading virus in the community. Testing protocols for the novel coronavirus as developed by the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control rely on a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, which homes in on the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus’s genetic material in a tissue sample and amplifies the signal by duplicating the target RNA to a level that can be detected. The reactions provided by the researchers can enable anywhere from 200-400 tests. As of today [March 30th], there are 68 confirmed cases of COVID-19 cases in Santa Barbara County, with eight hospitalizations — a so far relatively favorable situation County Public Health officials attribute to social distancing. However, the virus is known to spread rapidly from person to person as well as through Testing for the novel coronavirus requires a series of contact with reactions to find the virus’s genetic material from a surfaces, and can tissue sample be transmitted via asymptomatic carriers, raising concern and frustration over the low supply of tests available to community members who suspect they might be suffering from COVID-19 infection. There are more than half a million cases worldwide. As the pandemic made its way through Europe and Asia mere weeks ago, Max Wilson Carolina Arias the researchers knew Assistant Professor Assistant Professor Graduate Diversity it was only a matter of time before it reached the United States, so they took action and stocked up on the reagents. “Ken and I had the foresight a few weeks ago to buy reagents so that we Kenneth S. Kosik Diego Acosta-Alvear could do testing as Harriman Professor of Assistant Professor we had to,” Wilson Neuroscience said. Nevertheless, they were struck by how acute the shortage of the necessary reagents had become in so little time. “There’s a worldwide scramble for reagents right now,” he said.

April is National Poetry Month

April 3, 2020


By Ted Kooser, U.S. Poet Laureate


HAT SAGE CURSE, “May you live in interesting times,” has been upon us for the past few years, but here a Kentucky poet, Jonathan Greene, offers us some reassurance that there is order in the world. Greene has a special talent for, and love of, short poems, and this is a good example of his work. This poem is from his most recent book, Afloat, published by Broadstone Books.

The Return


By Carol DeCanio Abeles, Special to VOICE


F IT’S APRIL, it must be National Poetry Month. And what better poems as examples than from our elementary school students? Here is a description of cozy, without directly naming it, by Charlie Le Renard- a 5th grade student at Montecito Union School.

BED FORT Under my bed all tucked away in a bundle of pillows reading a book or listening to music. It smells like fresh pillowcases and tastes like darkness.

It is often said that writing itself can unleash the power of imagination. Poppy Christensen, in Grade 5 at Cold Spring School, describes her experience. I WRITE I write like the waves crashing down as the sailor guides his ship. I write like a whisper slowly, quietly as if it were never there. I write like the stars shining in the dark night. I write like a desert where people leave their tracks in my sand.

And of course there is no absence of quiet contemplation when beginning to think about writing a poem. Kellan McWilliams, a 5th grader at Montecito Union School, describes where that can take place for her.

We are heartened when each year the barn swallows return. MY SPECIAL PLACE My special place under the trees Soft dirt and earth pad the ground Scent of lemon and oranges and a sharp smell of soil It’s quiet and calm letting me think my thoughts I hear the soothing sound of birds and then the buzz of my brother’s saw slowly cutting a surfboard into shape

Children are a continual source of uncontrived life. Read what Dylan Cotich, Grade 4 at Mountain View School, has to say about his heart. MY HEART If you took my heart out and cracked it open like an egg you would see and hear A ukulele strumming a steady beat a wolf chasing its prey a torpedo speeding underwater a big ruin, towering over warm grass a mountain crossing the clouds and looking out at civilization The uke strums a sad tune and you’d see blazing stars shoot past If you splayed the content out on a table you’d hear a gradually building orchestra you’d see a storm building in the warm weather it would strike lightening down dogs barking through the window of a house An explorer striking his country’s flag down on new land A book flipping through pages of memories The storm starting to build up again Pine trees in the mountains getting blown to one side A tornado starting up The heart snapping back together as it was supposed to be.

With appreciation and great debt to our poets and their teachers who encourage them. Teachers like poet Lois Klein who recognize what stands in front of them. A LETTER FROM LOIS KLEIN California Poet in the Schools Poet-Teacher I Have Thought of You, Young Poets I have thought of your faces eyes bright with images hands waving ideas on your fingertips. I have thought of your frowns of concentration your smiles of discovery your journeys pressed onto paper. I have thought of all the stories wrapped inside you each one a star in an endless galaxy. I have wanted you to shine like that. I know that you always will.

They find their old nests, teach their young to fly, lining up on the barn roof for their first flight. They remind us, for now, some rituals of this good earth continue.

Column 784 By Ted Kooser, U.S. Poet Laureate


ane Hirshfield, who lives in California, is one of our country’s finest poets. I found this beautiful meditation in Poetry of Presence: An Anthology of Mindfulness Poems, published by Grayson Books of West Hartford, CT. Ms. Hirshfield’s most recent book of poetry is the newly-published Ledger: Poems from Alfred A. Knopf, Inc.

Meeting the Light Completely Even the long-beloved was once an unrecognized stranger. Just so, the chipped lip of a blue-glazed cup, blown field of a yellow curtain, might also, flooding and falling, ruin your heart. A table painted with roses. An empty clothesline. Each time, the found world surprises— that is its nature. And then what is said by all lovers: “What fools we were, not to have seen.” American Life In Poetry does not accept unsolicited submissions.

The Cure Has To Be Worse Than the Problem

Courtesy of the Federal Reserve


By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE

RESIDENT TRUMP ON SUNDAY announced that he was extending his administration’s guidelines on social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic to April 30th. He seems to have taken the recommendation of his top scientific advisors Drs. Fauci and Brix to heart, backing away from his assertion that the virus will have diminished enough to be able to celebrate Easter Sunday on April 12th in churches. Dr. Fauci said Sunday on CNN’s Face the Nation that the novel coronavirus could kill from 100,000 to 200,000 people while infecting millions of others, though he said that the virus was difficult to model this early in the outbreak. But recent scientific research and mounting anecdotal evidence show the more severe the ‘cure’, including longer social isolation and business closures, the quicker the return to economic growth once it is lifted. Researchers from the Federal Reserve in a recent study of the 1918 Spanish Influenza pandemic that killed more than 50 million people, cited recently by MarketWatch’s Steve Goldstein, found that the more draconian the ‘cure’ in tamping down the initial spread, the more lives were saved and there was a more robust economic recovery as well. The 1918 Flu Pandemic lasted from January 1918 to December 1920, and it spread worldwide. It is estimated that about 500 million people, or one-third of the world’s population, became infected with the virus. The number of deaths is estimated to be at least 50 million worldwide, with about 550,000 to 675,000 occurring in the United States. “Most U.S. cities applied a wide range of NPIs in fall 1918 during the second and most deadly wave of the 1918 Flu Pandemic,” said the study. “The measures applied include social distancing measures such as the closure of schools, theaters, and churches, the banning of mass gatherings, but also other measures such as mandated mask wearing, case isolation, making influenza a notifiable disease, and public disinfection/hygiene measures.

HE COMMUNITY OF SANTA BARBARA AND THE COMMUNITY OF THE WORLD has been called into action by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our city, our lives, our ways of doing business, our families will never be able to return to their old normals. But we will move forward - now by Sheltering in Place... Later, by re-emerging with a new sense of the importance of everyone working together, to support each other and help everyone evolve into people and businesses prepared to live in a world where pandemics are part of everyone’s experience. The response of every single person is and will be integral to the health of our community. VOICE Magazine will continue to support the people and non-profits, the businesses and government agencies working on the front lines by providing important public information, business and personal news to sustain community life. We need your help. Every community needs channels of communication which are open and free to the public. For the past 26 years VOICE Magazine (AKA CASA Magazine) has remained free to Santa Barbara residents, both in print and digitally. We have never put up a pay wall to our digital edition or website. With your continued support via advertising and contributions this model of community journalism will go forward into the future. Journalism is evolving, though. Over 50 percent of local news sources have disappeared since 1991 - more since the pandemic has shuttered businesses. In our community we have seen many loved media outlets come and go. We’ve been blessed that while providing local service, we have managed to outlive many of them. VOICE Magazine has survived because of its advertisers, readers, and its hard working staff that put in countless hours to support a diverse community that believes in being inclusive. We thank-you, each and every one of you! At this moment, Santa Barbara is facing COVID-19; major economic upheaval magazine including thousands of lay-offs; water, housing, and homeless issues; yet at the www.VoiceSB.com AKA: CASA Magazine same time, the need to become a more cohesive caring community is making local reporting more essential than ever. With your help, VOICE Magazine will continue to advocate for a stronger and healthier community. We hope you will consider a targeted contribution in support of this nearly 27 year old project. Consider: • Contributing funds for more Spanish and Bilingual Articles... up to $10,000 is needed. • Contributing funds to expand local Environmental Coverage... up to $25,000 is needed. • Contributing funds for VOICE Magazine to transition into a non-profit News center...$5,000 needed.

URIED BY LOCAL GALLERIST JEREMY TESSMER, the AAC’s annual juried exhibition, Open to Abstraction, has found a home online, due to the coronavirus pandemic closure of the Faulkner Gallery. Tessmer’s juror statement notes, that to be great abstract art today, “abstract painting must continue to push, to take chances. We’ve identified many ways to make abstract images pleasing, but it is the search for Untitled SBE 54, Acrylic, 48 x 36 in. by Pamela Benham, FIRST PLACE award new pictorial ideas that I find most exciting.” The exhibition offers all the works juried into the exhibition and winners and honorable mentions and offers abstract art lovers a chance to check out the local art scene from home.

That Crazy Coriolis...

Photos courtesy of Beverley Jackson

"OH, IF I ONLY HAD THE TIME, I'd clean out this damned closet!" I shouted as an unbelievable assortment of things fell on my head. "Oh, if I had the time I'd try that new recipe." "Oh if I had time, I'd get the tax papers together!" "Oh if I had the time..." Of course none of it is being done, though I'm closed out of the world in self isolation with nothing but time. And I spend a lot of time remembering my wonderful past, even things like World Fairs, because it's big news right now that the 2020 World's Fair in Tokyo has been canceled. Looking at that date, I realized how many years I've been going to World Fairs. My first was 1939 in San Francisco. All I cared about at that one was dolls, and I do remember the cherry blossoms were in bloom at the Japanese Pavilion. We weren’t really working with a system, or Among those I've attend have been Belgium in neatly. 1958 and Sevilla, Spain in 1992; and of course the 1984 USA Fair, where we had a venue here in Santa Barbara. I remember having dinner with the late Jody Jacobs of the Los Angeles Times. During dinner she handed me a handful of small blue pins from the L.A. Times. I said what are these for? She explained once I got to the fair events, I'd catch on fast. Knowing my collecting tendencies, she knew I would, and I did. Jody had given me a head start on it all. I had plenty to start trading Olympic souvenir pins with Europeans who wanted Los Angeles examples to take home. And Trade I did! When I met someone, I didn't acknowledge the introduction, I checked out the pins they were wearing to see if they had any one I could trade for. Most of the men wore theirs on the lapels of their jackets. I had a brown cotton dress that worked out well. The top was elastic and it could be pulled up or down showing my pins across Special Panasonic limited edition 2012 the front. The top got pulled down the lowest when I was bargaining with a couple of attractive Italians! And, I needed every maneuver I could think of trying to get one from the Romanians. They were the first team that came in years to participate from the Soviet part of the world. I got it by the way. I had a box filled with these colorful pins after our California venue and it seemed like a shame to just stick them away in the back of a drawer. And I love necklaces. So, I thought, "what about combining the two?" I had Lucite discs made with a hole in each to run a silver chain through. Every time I wear them, which is often, everyone stops me so they can get a closer look, and as their memories flow back, I listen to the tales of their World's Fair experiences. Well my World's Fair souvenir pin story should end there, but unlike Tokyo, I have a 2020 pin story! In one of the smaller auction houses I follow, what should show up but four beautiful wool scarves covered with a major collection of the pins. Of course I bid, and kept bidding until I got them. Why, I don't know. It would be much too expensive to make necklaces out of them. Then I decided Veronica and I would spend our isolation time sorting them, making appropriate groups, pin them to velvet panels, and then put them on EBay for sale. Sounds easy, but it kept us happily occupied for whole days and proved a fascinating challenge…I'll let the photos show you the Veronica at work... In the foreground is the necklace process. I made in 1984

OR SEVERAL DAYS I THOUGHT THAT A BREAKWATER OUTING might be a great spot to maintain the required social distance while getting some fresh Spring air and a little exercise. This turned out to be more of a challenge than I’d anticipated! I found myself battling 25 to 30 knot headwinds, an occasional salt water bath, sand in my nose and eyes, and temperatures in the 50’s and 60’s that were made chillier by the wind. I toughed it out ‘til the halfway mark before I turned tail and headed back. Mother Nature’s invisible hand caused me to occasionally stumble as it pushed me past my self-propelled maximum ground speed, but the good news is that this inbound jaunt was a whole lot faster. That was when I suddenly flashed on that crazy Coriolis Effect. No clue why this came to mind, maybe from a manual on How to Fly Airplanes 101 or What’s Up with those Ocean Currents for Boaters. Ok, I made those up … but why not blame that crazy Coriolis for cutting short my walk? But here’s the rub: it’s not possible to exactly blame the Coriolis because it’s the “Man Behind the Curtain” in meteorology. The Coriolis Effect actually concerns the Earth’s rotation: as currents move above, the planet spins below bending the direction of the winds and tides. Above the Equator in the Northern Hemisphere the currents move clockwise to the right and in the Southern Hemisphere, counterclockwise to the left. Which is why a flight from LAX to JFK is a shorter ride than JFK to LAX. However, the airport moves with the Earth it sits on, so the pilot adjusts the route accordingly otherwise the plane would land at Horse Breath The Pilgrim International, somewhere northwest of JFK. That’s the Coriolis! Aviators and mariners are aware that navigation depends on a combination of factors, including the Coriolis. But those of us on the ground only feel it’s side effects; the Pineapple Express is an example, as are periods of heavy weather in the West that travel eastward causing havoc in the form of tornados, Nor’easters, and flooding. Our recent winds and weather have done damage here too: possible case in point, the tall ship Pilgrim. The Pilgrim, moored at Dana Point Harbor and owned by The Ocean Institute, is sinking and is beyond The Pilgrim as she is in Dana Point Harbor... sinking repair. The beloved vessel, which served as an inspiring real-world classroom to hundreds of thousands of students and visitors, heeled overnight in the slip at the Ocean Institute’s dock. The ship is a full-scale replica of the ship immortalized by Richard Henry Dana in his classic book Two Years Before the Mast and has provided a floating experience for 4th and 5th graders to be mates on a tall ship in the 1800’s. It’s sister ship, The Spirit of Dana Point is a yearly visitor to Santa Barbara for the Maritime Museum’s popular education program. Dana Point’s city manager, Mike Killebrew, told the Orange County Register, “Heartbreaking. I’m at a loss for words… the overnight stay on it was a life experience.” Although there had been a slow leak, the amount of water taken in over the weekend is a mystery. Could the winds and weather of the last weeks have been a factor? And the behind the scenes, the profound influence of the Coriolis Effect? Meteorology is an inexact science and we remain at the mercy of forces beyond our control. So, right now I’m blaming it all on that crazy Coriolis. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it!

Exploring Ingmar Bergman Films during the Coronavirus Crisis


Review by Robert F. Adams, Special to VOICE

HOUGH AUDIENCES HAVE BEEN SHUT-OUT OF MOVIE THEATRES during the ongoing COVID-19 shelter-in-place directives, there are opportunities to catch up on terrific films that have literary, philosophical, and visual value via computer or television-based streaming. In the convenience of their own home, film audiences can explore, if they have access to a smart TV, a tablet of some kind, or computer and a subscription to Amazon Prime, Netflix, or a variety of other services, or, even better a free library card from the Santa Barbara Public Library through their Kanopy service. There are many on-line treasures to discover, but a strong and adventurous choice would be the remarkable films by the famed Swedish director Ingmar Bergman. In addition to the above streaming venues, Bergman’s catalogue can also be found with a subscription to The Criterion Channel, for an annual fee. An exploration of these internet resources turns up Bergman’s important mid-career works such as the subtly sensual Summer with Monika from 1953; The Seventh Seal, a masterpiece of storytelling from 1958, Wild Strawberries, a dreamlike poem of cinema dealing with passing time and mortality from 1957; The Magician from 1958; The Virgin Spring from 1960; Through a Glass Darkly from 1961; Persona from 1966; Cries and Whispers from 1972; and his late career swan

song, Fanny and Alexander, from 1982. There are compelling, deep, and rich themes and characterizations in Bergman’s films and in all of the scripts which he wrote himself, an incredible accomplishment considering that he was directing many classic works from Shakespeare, Molière, Ibsen, and Strindberg for Swedish Theatres at the same time while making movies. He was influenced by his theatre work and also by Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane, European silent films, and German Expressionism. His scripts and movies are described by some as darkly tedious, but on further examination, the dilemmas within the stories are multi-dimensional and riveting. Many of Bergman’s films contain stunning dream sequences that have a magical realism quality. In a Bergman film, music is used sparingly, is derived from classical The Seventh Seal, film still sources, and is only employed around the edges. Ambient sound is mainly used throughout his films, creating a disquieting sonic atmosphere. With the music minimal, the focus is on the dramatic turnings. Many of Bergman’s classics are shot in black and white and he worked intensely with master cinematographers including Gunnar Fischer, a magician of chiaroscuro lighting effects. Fischer was known for the stark contrasts between the main character’s faces and the turbulent landscapes in the background. The cinematography could be described as a metaphor reflecting the clash between the extreme dark and light of the human condition. Though the films have subtitles as they are Swedish, the compositional visual language is entrancing. Sven Nykvist, another key cinematographer worked with Bergman in the early sixties. He was known for his natural lighting effects, especially of the actor’s faces, as seen in The Virgin Spring and Persona, and later in color, for Fanny and Wild Strawberries with Ingmar Bergman, and Cinematographer Alexander. These films offer riveting cinema on a remarkable Gunnar Fischer level. In every frame, a painterly quality is found. Bergman is known for using searing closeups, dramatizing human dimensions. In his classic years from the early fifties through the late sixties, he used a rotating cast of ensemble players. In particular, he worked with some of the most attractive actresses in northern Europe including the expressive Liv Ullmann who starred in Persona and Cries & Whispers; Bibi Andersson, always translucent, who was seen in The Seventh Seal and Wild Strawberries; the intuitive Harriet Andersson who starred in Summer with Monika, and Through a Glass Darkly; the sultry Gunnel Lindblom featured in The Seventh Seal and The Virgin Spring; and the remarkable Ingrid Thulin filled the screen in Wild Strawberries, and in The Magician. His male actors also had amazing faces and featured Max Von Sydow, Gunnar Harriet Andersson in Summer With Monika, film still Björnstrand, and Bengt Ekerot, (playing “Death” in The Seventh Seal), among others. Also available for streaming rentals are two documentaries on Bergman. Trespassing Bergman from 2015 features a group of international directors converging on a remote island off the coast of Sweden in the Baltic Sea to find the house that Bergman lived in for forty years. 2018’s Searching for Ingmar Bergman is a feature documentary from German director Margarethe von Trotta offering interviews with some of Bergman’s actors and family offering revealing glimpses of this legendary director. YouTube also has a wealth of materials on Bergman’s career and life including interviews and scenes from his films. During this time of churning current events, film audiences need give up on discovering new cinematic frontiers. Step into the 21st century and check out the technological gifts at our sheltering in place fingertips.

President’s Corner

What is Essential?


By Staci Caplan, SBAOR President

N THE WORLD OF COVID-19 everything is constantly changing. In the real estate industry, major changes have occurred, and may likely have changed again by the time this article is published. Initially the federal government published a list of essential services during this time of restricted activity. It did not include real estate as an essential service. Since then, real estate has been added to the essential list. Governor Newsom’s stay-at-home order issued March 19th, as updated by the “Advisory Memorandum on Identification of Essential Critical Staci Caplan Infrastructure Workers During COVID-19 Response” from March 28th, expressly includes residential and commercial real estate, including settlement services, as essential services recognized by the Department of Homeland Security as being necessary for the maintenance of America’s Critical Infrastructure. This comes at a time when numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases are rising exponentially, not plateauing or decreasing. It comes at a time during which we have been told it is critical to stay home to “flatten the curve,” when healthcare workers are begging us to stay home as each new infected person puts their own lives (and those of their family) and our whole healthcare system at risk. This may seem confusing. The California Association of REALTORS® has issued statewide

guidelines for doing real estate business, however, there are counties that have more restrictive Shelter In Place orders. Santa Barbara County is not one of them. So, it is up to REALTORS® and the public to practice discernment in deciding what is truly essential during these harrowing times. Here are some of the highlights of the guidelines, along with some of my comments and concerns: • Showings should be done virtually, if at all possible. • All activities should be completed electronically, if at all possible. • Only a single agent and no more than two other individuals are to be in a dwelling at the same time during a showing. If other persons are necessary for a showing, they should wait outside or in their vehicles to observe the social distance guidelines. • Sellers are to be advised that they should not be present within a dwelling at the same time as other individuals. If a seller insists on remaining on the property, that seller is to agree to the terms and sign a declaration (see below) that is required for persons entering the property. • Agents should read and understand the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on how to protect yourself, where it reads: “The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus….It is unknown how long the air inside
