Dealing with COVID-19

April 7, 2020

What is happening to the world? As of March 19, 2020, the order to stay at home and practice social distancing are in place until further notice. It covers the whole state of California, but it exempts "essential" activities, such as gas stations, banks, grocery stores, pharmacies, etc. Everything else that the government deems non-essential has been ordered to close due to COVID-19 and in the process, shelves are going bare due to people preparing for self-isolation; including the hoarding of toilet paper (scratching my head).

Living with the COVID-19 virus.
Moreover, school districts have closed their campuses until May 2020, but remote learning is in effect via online tools. This is all based on changing circumstances, so nothing is set in stone.

As for the Beach & Tennis Club it is the same; closure has been extended. An email was sent with the following:

"As you are aware, Governor Newsom issued a stay at home order in March which required that all non-essential businesses close to the public in an effort to control the spread of COVID-19. Additionally, the President has extended social distancing guidelines through April 30, 2020.

This order required that the Association shut down the non-essential portions of its operations. As such, the clubhouse continues to be closed at this time, and the Association’s business offices also remain closed until further notice. In addition, all recreation facilities remain closed."

Oops! I almost forgot, but there is more:

"We encourage you to continue to pay your assessments electronically via online bill pay or ACH."

That's really sweet of them. Outside of being able to use the Beach & Tennis Clubhouse facilities, I'm not sure of any other service that benefits us when it is closed; but you're still expected to pay the monthly payments.

Anyways, this post isn't solely about COVID-19. I'm sure you're getting plenty of information watching TV and social media.

It seems our Board of Directors is dwindling down to two (2), meaning the association does not have a quorum of at least 3 board members in order to conduct business. In addition, the Board of Directors meets bi-monthly, so it shouldn't take up too much of your time.

Also, it seems federal and state taxes have been extended to July 15, 2020, but not your property tax; it is still due by April 10, 2020. If it's rolled into your morgage payment, then you don't have to worry.

Lastly as a reminder, per the CDC:

1. Wash your hands frequently.
2. Avoid touching your face.
3. Sneeze or cough into a tissue, or the inside of your elbow.
4. Disinfect frequently used items/surfaces.

Let's hope this is all over soon.

Be safe! Stay healthy!
