Dear One Renaissance Place Residents,
The board, in consultation with the association manager, and other business partners, have been planning for contingencies that may arise in the community as a result of the spread of COVID-19.
Based on advice that has been circulated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Illinois Department of Health, we have detailed some possible scenarios and our current plans to deal with them. These plans are subject to change based on CDC guidance and advice from our professional partners.
Cleaning. The association has been extensively cleaning, disinfecting, and wiping down surfaces in common areas and amenities. Owners are responsible for their private property.
Common areas and amenities. The association has closed the gym, library, and other common areas and amenities effective [March 21, 2020] until at least May 1, 2020
Meetings and events. The CDC has recommended against any gatherings of 10 or more people through the middle of May. That’s why we are postponing community events and nonessential meetings. The Annual Meeting will be rescheduled, and the date will be announced to all owners.
Social distancing. Many experts also are urging people to practice “social distancing,” which is the idea of maintaining a roughly 6-foot distance between other people. It also means limiting nonessential travel, avoiding public transportation when possible, working from home, and skipping social gatherings.
Staffing. The community may experience temporary staff shortages if employees get sick or need to remain at home. The doormen are not an essential service, therefore, will not be working during the stay in place order. Move-ins and move-outs, open houses, construction work, social events, large deliveries, and maintenance may be curtailed until staffing levels return to normal and the coronavirus pandemic is better controlled. See our website for detailed restrictions and updates.
