The Governor has asked all Californians to stay at home except for essential needs therefore all outdoor activities at the Lifestyle Center will be closed until further notice
Court (Bocce, Pickle, and Tennis) access is one of the treasured recreation activities we usually enjoy year round at the Lifestyle Center and the board understands that. It is painful to have that access interrupted. These are, however, atypical times and atypical circumstances. The Board is acting to close all outdoor amenities because of the following:
Touching any surface has become dangerous in the era of the new coronavirus. Fingers may pick up the microbe leading to COVID-19 infection. Coughing, sneezing and expelling water from the mouth are just a few ways to leave virus microbes on surfaces. Touching any of those surfaces could result in virus transmission at any time between cleanings.
While reports state regular flu viruses are active on surfaces up to 48 hours and are killed by 75 degree heat, in the case of coronavirus, higher heat and humidity helps it to stay active longer. The exact threshold temperature to deactivate COVID-19 is still unknown.
Advice was received that closing access to all amenities by t the HOA’s legal counsel was best to assure everyone’s safety at this time. Acting proactively will prevent our HOA from being liable for damages from any accusation of negligence if we now do all we can to preserve a safe and healthy environment for all.
If we err, we err on the side of caution for the welfare of our owner families and guests. We share owner interest in returning to normal opportunities to interact in a relaxed, unrestricted way as soon as the need for caution has passed.
Be well and safe! Board of Directors – IPCCA
