UPDATE on COVID-19 (CCHOA Office Closed to General Public)

Dear Homeowners:

On Feb. 14, the County declared a local health emergency and proclaimed a local emergency to deal with the novel coronavirus, labeled a pandemic by the World Health Organization. On March 4, Governor Gavin Newsom proclaimed a state of emergency in California. By order of the Public Health Officer of San Diego County, effective on Friday, March 13 and continuing until March 31, all public and private gatherings of 250 people or more are prohibited. Today, March 16, 2020, San Diego County leaders made drastic changes to that public health order by adding 11 items to the county's coronavirus-related regulations. The most drastic changes included an order prohibiting public gatherings of 50 or more and an order mandating all bars that do not serve food and all dine-in restaurants to close. Restaurants will be allowed to serve via drive-thru and pick-up only. Public Health Officer Wilma Wooten said it was possible that a "countrywide lockdown is probably coming very soon."

The number of COVID-19 cases in San Diego County doubled to 55 over the weekend, according to the latest data from the County Health and Human Services Agency. There may be additional in San Diego County that are not being handled by HHSA, including some cases among U.S. service members. San Diego County's public health order, which included nine mandates and three strong recommendations, was meant to slow the spread. The following orders were issued:
1.     All public gatherings of 50 or more are prohibited. The county had originally prohibited gatherings of 250 or more but changed the policy following new recommendations from the Centers for Disease and Prevention
2.     All non-essential gatherings of any size are strongly discouraged
3.     Establishments that serve alcohol but no food are ordered to close. Restaurants must close all on-site dining, though ordering for pick up or drive-thru will still be allowed
4.     All businesses should enact social distancing and should use telecommuting when possible. Businesses that use policies requiring doctor’s notes for sick days should terminate the practice immediately
5.     Parents should ensure that their children are following
6.     The County urges anyone age 65 years or older and those with underlying health issues to self-isolate
7.     Non-essential personnel are prohibited from entering hospitals or long-term care facilities
8.     Hospitals and healthcare should take measures to preserve resources including delaying nonemergency procedures where feasible
9.     Hospitals must report all positive COVID-19 tests to the county immediately
10.     All people arriving in the county from locations as found on the CDC warning level 3 travel advisory list shall be subject to 14-day home quarantine and self-monitoring
11.     A strong recommendation for people exhibiting mild to moderate symptoms of COVID-19 to self-isolate in their place of residence until seeking medical care/treatment.

In Coronado, the Coronado School District closed all schools from March 16, 2020 until April 3, 2020. The City has stepped up their cleaning and disinfecting protocols to prevent community spread of the novel coronavirus and the CCHOA is following their lead with additional cleaning and disinfecting of common areas and restrooms. Additionally, we are closing the CCHOA Admin Office to the public and will be conducting all business via phone or electronically. Board and Committee meetings will be held via remote means and town halls have been suspended until further notice. Gatherings in clubhouses and the Grand Caribe Room will be suspended until further notice. We ask that you use the mail slot located underneath the bulletin board by the front door to the CCHOA Office to drop off checks and requests. Staff will be available by phone at 619-435-4323 from 8am until 5pm and forms can be found on the CCHOA.org website in the Document Center under the Main Menu. Please submit forms/requests electronically to
memberservices@cchoa.org and copy manager@cchoa.org. CCHOA Maintenance personnel and Safety Patrol Officers have been instructed to take extra precautionary steps when responding to calls for service to maintain social distancing while responding to homeowners.

CCHOA Staff and contractors have been trained on the coronavirus symptoms and precautions and have been told to stay at home if they or someone in their family is sick. Self-imposed quarantines will help curb the spread of the virus. You can take steps to protect and educate yourself and prepare in the event of a local outbreak. This is an emerging situation. The City will provide updated information as it becomes available.

We are looking at alternatives for conducting the March 26, 2020 Board meeting in person to protect the Directors, Staff, and homeowners. More information will be provided.

We ask all homeowners to remain calm and look out for your neighbors. Together we will get through this emergency and come out a better community for it.
