Below is a synopsis of this episode.


Good Morning Residents.

Here are the highlights from yesterday’s podcast concerning the lifting of the Regional Stay at Home Order that was issued on 12/3/2020.

As a result of the new State Guidelines, the Board has implemented new guidelines for the opening of certain activities which is now allowed by the State and County.

As we move forward please be aware that the State’s Stay-at-Home Order from March is still in effect. There are exceptions to this order that we have incorporated into these guidelines. Please understand that the exceptions are not always consistent. Some activities are granted exceptions while others are not. For example, Restaurants can open outdoors but indoor activities are still closed.

Indoor gatherings are still prohibited for any size in any venue, so residents are not supposed to have visitors in their home. The only gatherings allowed indoors are for people that live in the same household.

Gatherings: With the lifting of the Regional Stay at Home Order, new gathering rules are in place for outdoor use. Gatherings of up to 3 households are now allowed outdoors. This means residents and/or visitors from outside the HOA may visit your home provided everyone remains outdoors. Social distancing and masks are still required if you can’t maintain at least 6’ apart.

Curfew: The Curfew of 10 pm to 5 am is no longer in effect.

Guest on Streets: The Board voted to allow guests to use the streets and North Channel area. Residents may now walk with children, grandchildren, or friends on the streets and/or North Channel area. Visitors may bike on the streets and ride in golf carts but age restrictions on who can drive a golf cart still apply. Keep in mind the use of skateboards and scooters (or motorized skateboards and scooters) is strictly prohibited within SCSHCA streets, parking lots and common areas.

Putting Course: Guests are now allowed to use the Putting Course behind the Montecito Clubhouse. Reservations are not required for the Putting Course.

Library: The library will open for use on February 1 from 9 am to 4 pm daily, closed on Sunday. It is limited to one person at a time or people from the same household. If someone is waiting time is limited to 15 minutes. This is for residents only so guests are not allowed. Reservations are not required to use the library.

Courts and Pools: Tennis, Pickleball, Golf, Pools, and Bocce have no changes. Outside play or visitors are allowed for golf, but visitors are not allowed for Tennis, Pickleball, Pools, or Bocce. Reservations are required to use any of these activities.

Dog Parks: There are no changes for the Dog Parks.

South Side Driving Range: The South Side of the driving range is still closed.

Clubhouses and indoor activities are still prohibited.

Guests: The Stay at Home Order is still in effect. The State Order is still in effect about ‘Stay-at-Home’ and no gatherings indoors. Residents are responsible to follow the State Order. The HOA will not be looking for violations of the State Order on private property. The HOA will investigate any complaint of noise or conduct on private property. The HOA will enforce no guests in all areas of Tennis, Pickleball, Bocce, Basketball, Library, and the Pools.

Masks: Remember that masks are still required at all times if 6’ social distancing cannot be maintained.
