COVID-19 HOA and Management Team Response

Dear Homeowners and Friends,

The board, in consultation with the association manager, attorney, insurance provider, and other business partners, has been planning for contingencies that are arising and may continue to arise in the community as a result of the spread of COVID-19.

Based on advice that has been circulated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with Houston Health Departments and Federal Governments broadened COVID-19 social distancing guidance for the general public, we are canceling all community events and meetings. Should the Board feel it necessary to hold a meeting, we will be offering residents that option to tune in to those meetings remotely.

Other Association Operations:
Common areas and amenities. The association may close all Common Areas and Amenities until the CDC recommends a safe date for opening.

Social Distancing. Many experts also are urging people to practice “social distancing,” which is the idea of maintaining a roughly 6-foot distance between other people. It also means limiting nonessential travel, avoiding public transportation when possible, working from home, and skipping social gatherings.

Staffing. The community may experience temporary staff shortages if employees get sick, need to remain at home or move to a shelter in place, thus working remotely. association physical contact may be curtailed until staffing levels return to normal and the coronavirus pandemic is better controlled.

If you get sick. Medical authorities are strongly urging all persons who exhibit symptoms to stay home and avoid public spaces unless you need medical care. You also should separate yourself from other people and pets in your home.

If you need to visit a doctor or get tested for COVID-19, develop a plan before you go:

  • Call ahead before visiting your doctor
  • Wear a facemask if you are sick
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes
  • Clean your hands often
  • Avoid sharing household items, such as utensils, plates, glasses, and towels
  • Clean all “high-touch” surfaces, such as counters, tables, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, phones, keyboards, and remotes

The association will be prepared to reasonably accommodate an owner who is sick by postponing violation hearings, extending deadlines on architectural applications, or granting payment extensions if appropriate.

This association will not and does not make any of the decisions mentioned above lightly. These actions are being taken to ensure the health and welfare of the residents of this community. We pledge to keep residents informed of all relevant development and how they affect association operations.

It is also incumbent upon residents to take this situation seriously and do their part to minimize the spread of this deadly disease. The association highly encourages you to review safety guidelines and look for updated from the CDC, the local health department and the World Health Organization.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Stay safe and healthy.
