Good afternoon residents:
In yesterday’s Podcast I described the meaning of the ‘Stay at Home’ directive as defined by the state. “Stay at home” is a more rigorous form of social distancing. It involves staying in your home unless you need to leave for “essential activities” or to work for an “essential business,” or for “essential travel”. Under the “stay at home” Executive Order you cannot host or attend any gatherings. For Stay at Home we may not host or attend any gatherings unless they are considered essential. During this time, we are trying to maintain distances, maintain isolation, so that we minimize the spread of the virus which will help to keep our residents safe and healthy. Any activity involving people being together will jeopardize the health and safety of residents.
I was recently notified of a resident that built a small Pickleball court in his garage and the was inviting people over to play. This is an example of exactly what the state order does not want to have happen. Although a creative way to play Pickleball, it puts the community at risk when people gather together for any reason. Even though this activity is on private property, it cannot take place as a result of the state order, so the HOA may cite and fine anyone involved in the activity. We don’t want to cite people, but in the interest of public safety, anyone participating in such activities will be cited and the possible fine is $200 per person.
I want to apologize for an error in implementation that occurred recently. We did not make clear to security and staff that the walking paths around the Santa Rosa Clubhouse, tennis courts, and Pickleball courts are not part of the golf course. Some of you were warned that you could not walk on these paths because it was the golf course. This was done in error and has been corrected. You may walk on the paths around the Santa Rosa Clubhouse, you just can’t leave those paths to walk on the golf course paths.
Again, let’s do as requested by the directive and stay at home, which will help keep everyone safe.
I wish you all a safe and healthy day. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Thank you and see you all soon.
