our outdoor pool. While our pool
is always a popular amenity for our
Country Club Members, it is clearly
understood that the health and safe-ty
of everyone is always the priority.
Appropriate measures to safely
open our outdoor pool as current
NYS mandates are underway.
We intend to have the pool
uncovered in the middle of June
and have everything in place to
hopefully allow us to have it opened
in time for the July 4th weekend.
Prior to the opening, necessary
guidelines will be issued request-ing
everyone to cooperate by
acknowledging and practicing safe
distancing and personal hygiene.
Only then will we be able to safely
enjoy our pool.
Hopefully restrictions will
change and so will our guidelines.
Nevertheless, as some aspects of
society are beginning to return,
it remains necessary for us as a
community not to lose sight of
the importance of maintaining the
personal and social practices that
keep us safe:
It remains necessary for everyone
to be mindful of social distancing
and respectful of your neighbors.
Remember to wear a face mask
or cloth face covering for your nose
and mouth while in any public area
outside your apartment.
Above all, if you are not feeling
well with COVID-19 or other symp-toms,
please contact your physician
In closing, I want to assure
you that your Board of Directors,
Management Team, Building Staff
and Security employees continue
to work hard towards maintaining
the health and safety of every-one.
