President’s Message: Coronavirus Update 5/1/20

Kim Fuller

Good Morning Residents:

The County has issued a new order regarding health and safety guidelines that may be implemented effective May 1, 2020. I have attached the two orders from the county for your review. In following these directives, the Board decided that masks are no longer required while outdoors, but you always need to carry one. Masks are required everywhere indoors. Let me go through the different activities to update you on what is open, what is closed, and what requirements are in place.


Golf: Golf courses are open, and masks are not required outdoors. Masks are required indoors. Please review the attached procedures when playing golf. All other restrictions are still in place according to these guidelines. There are no guests allowed.

Tennis, Pickleball, Bocce: These activities are open with the same restrictions except masks are not required outdoors. Please review the attached procedures for reserving and playing these sports. There are no guests allowed.

Stay at Home Order is still in place: This means no guests and no gatherings of any size in any venue. You may not invite over non-essential guests to your home.

Gym: May not open by State and County order.

Fitness Classes: May not open by State and County order.

Clubhouse Games and Activities: All Clubhouse activities are closed per State Order.

Golf Course is closed to all activities except for golfers while playing golf: Per the HOA rules there is no walking, jogging, biking, or dogs allowed on the golf course at any time.

All clubhouses are closed except for the business Center in the Montecito: Only the business center is open in the Montecito Clubhouse. All other activities are closed.

HOA Office: The HOA office is open by appointment only. You need to call to make an appointment for essential requests. All other requests will be done by mail only.

Swimming pools: The pools will open according to attached procedures on May 4. Only one person at a time may swim for 30 minutes. Please see attached procedures if you want to swim. Reservations are on a first come first serve basis and you need to call for a reservation.

State Recommendation: “A strong recommendation is made that all persons who are 65 years old or older, have a chronic underlying condition, or have a compromised immune system self-quarantine themselves at home”.

I want to thank everyone for your cooperation to help make SCSH safe as we get through this time. So far, we know of no known case of covid-19 in the complex. We will need to practice the social distancing rules very carefully to help us all avoid this virus. We all need to continue to Stay at Home and not invite any guests into our homes either from inside or outside the complex. These measures will help everyone get through this time in a safe and healthy way.

We are part way home, but please stay focused, diligent, and responsible. By keeping our eye on the ball, we will hopefully get through this without a single case of the virus within our community.

If you have questions, please let me know.

Please stay healthy and safe.

Have a great day.

Thank you.

Kim Fuller
