How Do Real-Estate Agents Show Homes During Covid? With Face Masks, Gloves and Some Ingenuity

Heather T. Roy & Learka Bosnak

Ms. Bosnak: Heather and I have been working together for 15 years and we are very comfortable doing showings together. Then Covid shut everything down. We did a showing and I came back completely frustrated, because we were wearing masks. I felt muzzled. I was constantly running around saying, “I’m smiling under here!” This business is all about rapport, comfort level.

Ms. Roy: We’re like, “We need new skills. We need people to know what we’re thinking, and we also need to know what they’re thinking.” It was almost like we needed a body language expert. I am single and I had met with a couple of matchmakers in L.A. One had her clients meet with a body language expert—Mark Edgar Stephens.

Ms. Bosnak: Heather’s still single, but we love this guy.

Ms. Roy: So we called Mark and told him what we were

COVID-19 Halloween Masks for Sale on Amazon and eBay Spark Outrage

Coronavirus Halloween masks sold on Amazon are being removed from the website after a charity advocating patient rights described the listing as a “terrible lapse of judgment.”

The mask and other similar COVID-19 Halloween disguises, which aim to resemble a view of the virus under a microscope, are also currently available on eBay.

Creepy COVID-19 Halloween masks are for sale on Amazon

Just in time for Halloween, COVID-19 masks dotted with viral spikes, bulging eyes and an evil grin are being hawked on Amazon.

The ghoulish listing amid the coronavirus pandemic was made by YTFU, a company based in Guangdong, China, the country where the real bug originated in Wuhan, The Sun reported.

The latex “horror mask” – available for $24.59 — is “environmental and non-toxic,” according to the listing, which says wearing it “will give you an amazing and lasting impression.”

The various styles include a green head and purple spikes – the telltale SARS-CoV-2019 markers – and a white head with red spikes, both apparently aimed at injecting some infectious humor during the holiday.

“These masks show a terrible lapse of judgment by the manufacturers and sellers, and I hope they will be removed from sale quickly,” Rachel Power, CEO of the UK-based Patients Association, told the news outlet.
