April 2020 Newsletter
Posted By mplascencia on April 10, 2020
The following suggested protocols and steps are built around recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Everyone is encouraged to do their part in order to protect themselves and their neighbors.
Food and Beverage Delivery Apps
If you are using a food and beverage delivery service (i.e. UberEats, PostMates, GrubHub etc.), you must meet the delivery person at the front entry lobby door and must not let the delivery person into the building. By limiting the amount of non-Alicante residents from entering the building, this will help reduce the spread of germs.
Janitorial Cleaning Schedule
For the past month, our janitorial staff have changed up their regular daily cleaning schedule in order to emphasize cleaning the building’s high touch areas (elevator buttons, push bars, door handles, gate handles, etc.)
Fitness Room Closure
As you may already be aware the fitness room is currently closed and will remain closed until further notice.
Community Room Reservations
Management will not be taking any new community room reservations for the time being.
Management along with the Building Engineer have halted all non-essential work from taking place in order to limit the amount of non-Alicante personnel from coming onsite. All emergency and safety related repairs will continue.
Quarantine vs. Isolation
Isolation and quarantine help protect the public by preventing exposure to people who have or may have a contagious disease. To help give a clear definition as to what each one means, below are the definitions provided by the CDC website:
- Isolation separates sick people with a contagious disease from people who are not sick.
- Quarantine separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to a contagious disease to see if they become sick.
Garage Break In
Alicante recently experienced another garage break in. Please see the suggestions listed below that may help prevent break ins from occurring in the future:
- Do not leave anything of value in your vehicle that is visible from the outside
- Do not let anyone in the building that you do not know
- Please call our security company immediately if you see anything suspicious taking place (619) 488-9064 during afterhours.
- In the event of an emergency, please call 9-1-1.
In addition to the suggestions above, be sure to keep an eye out for anyone lurking around the garage gate when entering and exiting the building. Take a moment on P1 to check and see if anyone follows you in to the garage especially when entering at night before proceeding to your parking space. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact Management.
