What does the “Stay at Home” order mean for Boulder-area real estate?

On the evening of March 23, 2020, the City of Boulder issued emergency “Stay at Home” orders for individuals in the city.

It requires all individuals to stay at their place of residence, and that they are only allowed to leave their residences for specific approved “Essential Activities” (Things like grocery shopping, obtaining medical care or medicine, outdoor activities while practicing social distancing), “Essential Governmental Functions and Infrastructure”, and “Essential Businesses”.
