I stopped putting buyers in my car LONG before covid.  The masks don't do anything, so I don't require a mask (openings in the common surgical mask are 0.4 microns while the diameter of the flu/covid virus is 0.1 micron... in other words the holes in the mask are FOUR TIMES LARGER than the virus).

Not really into the mask, most of my buyers are driving their own cars. If everyone is wearing one out of respect I will wear one. Friend of mine is an engineer with one of the major mask companies. They have them tested for how effective they are, he said they don't really work. On the other hand, they test them for bacteria after wearing them and found them to contain bacteria like  Pneumonia, which I had in March and was really sick.

These days, people drive their car for their own comfort level. I refuse to wear a mask when driving Will, there are too many distractions on the road already to worry about trouble breathing through a restrictive piece of cloth!

I stopped putting buyers in my car long before COVID, it was right after a child touched all over the seats with her sticky fingers after eating a powdered donut. That was probably around 2003.

Will,

In commercial real estate, we rarely drove anyone around. We met them at buildings and stores. I am not going to get into this discussion of masks, and I agree with Michael Jacobs .  A

Most buyers prefer to drive their own car which is fine with me. If I have to pick up a buyer, I'll wear my mask. They usually get the idea if they didn't already ask ahead of time.

Finesse it and choose wording, tone and request accordingly. Being in the service business, literally we are servants. Being such, we don't give orders but take them. Housing clients are already in a delicate emotional state...

I haven't put buyers in my car since the pandemic started... no reason to ask for a mask. But if I did, I would not request them to wear a mask. I'm vaccinated and boosted and I'm fine... what they choose to do is their business. No mandates from me.
