The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is responding to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in China and which has now been detected in almost 70 locations internationally, including in the United States. The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” and the disease it causes has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).
As more cases of COVID-19 are confirmed, the CDC is closely monitoring the outbreak. COVID-19 causes respiratory illness in people and is largely spread through respiratory fluids from coughing and sneezing. Symptoms include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Please be advised that symptoms may not show up for two (2) to fourteen (14) days after exposure.
At this time, the latest COVID-19 risk assessment from the CDC reports that the immediate health risk to the general American public is low. We are not aware of any reported cases in the Manufactured Homes Communities that we manage, but we are closely monitoring the situation and have protocols that will be implemented if necessary. If we become aware of a heightened risk in any of our communities, we are prepared to take the necessary steps to reduce or limit the possible spread of the virus to residents and guests. As a precaution, we have also increased cleaning and disinfection of heavily trafficked areas in our communities.
Our commitment to the safety of our residents and employees has led us to a temporary closure of all amenity spaces throughout all communities, effective immediately. These closures are being done preventatively, to decrease the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Until further notice, the following areas (if applicable to each community) will remain closed:
- Basketball Courts
We ask all tenants and guests to practice regular hand washing and sanitizing, limit the number of deliveries and guests when possible, avoid loitering and gathering in common areas, and prioritize maintenance requests by holding off on non-essential items.
