Q: Is Rental housing considered an essential critical infrastructure sector?

A: Yes. Real Estate (e.g., office and apartment buildings, condominiums, mixed use facilities, self-storage) is a subsector of the Commercial Facilities Sector and therefore exempt under the California Governor’s order as an essential critical infrastructure sector. Thus, rental industry professionals are permitted and have a special duty to maintain continuity of operations. However, keep in mind the CISA guidance is not a federally mandated standard and,
therefore, other state and local governments may decide differently if they enact their own orders.
