Fitness Center Closures

    

Montecito and Santa Rosa Fitness centers are closed effective immediately until Saturday, June 19, at 2:30 p.m. The Santa Rosa Outdoor pool remains open.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Please note that in the last two weeks an individual who was in the Association’s fitness facilities recently tested positive for COVID-19. Consequently, the Association closed both fitness facilities so they can be cleaned and sanitized. If you were in the fitness facilities during the past two weeks and have questions about your health or the risks of potential COVID-19 exposure, please contact your health care professional immediately for further guidance.

Changes to Pool Hours

Effective Saturday, June 19, the Santa Rosa outdoor pool will close at 10 p.m.

On Friday, June 25, the Montecito Outdoor pool is scheduled to reopen, and will also close at 10 p.m.

IID Conserve Alert Is In Effect

A Conserve Alert is in effect today through Saturday, June 19. By conserving energy we can take stress off the energy grid, maintain reliable energy delivery service and help avert rotating power outages. Please conserve energy during the hours of 4-9 p.m.

June 15 Reopening

We are excited to announce that based on the State and County guidelines, all facilities will be open to full capacity effective June 15, 2021. Reservations will no longer be required for the Fitness Centers or outdoor pools. The indoor pool will still require a reservation. Clubs and Groups can resume full capacity in the clubhouses (with a reservation and based on availability).

Masks will not be required for residents, employees, vendors, etc. that have been vaccinated or have a medical exemption from the vaccination. The residents, employees, vendors, etc. will be responsible to wear a mask if not vaccinated. The HOA, DRM staff, Troon staff, etc. will not collect or request this information.

We look forward to seeing you all soon!
