COVID–19 CASES WITHIN THE PARK AS OF 01/12/2021
# Positive Tests/ Cases Confirmed: (7)
# Cases Active: (3)
MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING ARE REQUIRED – January 11, 2021.
The current surge of COVID cases and deaths has placed Arizona as one of the major hotspots in the world. To address this, we need to consider how we as individuals living in Wintergardens choose to meet this crisis. The following are some items to be considered:
The current standard set by the Arizona State Health Department (ASHD) does not require additional testing of individuals after their quarantine time is completed. In our situation that includes shareholders, renters, and employees. To carry it further regarding our employees, their health records are confidential. Their clearance to return to work is set by the ASHD. The possibility of requesting a negative test is not required. If that were to be the reality all shareholders and renters who tested positive would also be have receive at negative to be here. A double standard cannot exist.
A mask mandate and social distancing might be considered in all “common areas”. Interestingly enough is the fact that the only areas which are not “common areas” within Wintergardens are the individual Units. Perhaps if everyone practices courtesy and adheres to the recommended mask wearing and social distancing protocols in a conscious manner many of our concerns and anxieties could be better managed
Activities is currently working with the BOD to secure and sort thru the available sources of information to keep everyone informed and updated as much as possible. Please assist in a helpful manner whenever ever you are able. Keep in mind that those who are doing this work are volunteers. You might even consider asking if you can assist them. We are all grateful for their efforts.

October 26, 2020:
To all shareholders and renters. This year the scheduled annual trimming of the palms was thrown a curve by Mother Nature. To explain, the schedule is determined based on past history. Our time slot was setup, but the seeds dropped earlier about one month plus earlier than anticipated. The normal cleanup was done, however there may be seed pods in the grass of your lawn. As you prepare your lawn for the fall overseed process please rake up the pods and dispose of them if you find they are present.
October and November shareholder meetings have been cancelled to allow for appropriate meeting logistics setup and notification to shareholders.
