March 18, 2020 - Course of Action to be Taken by Building Management and Maintenance Staff

Updated recommendations and course of action for building management and maintenance staff.

Please be advised that as the Corona/COVID-19 Virus emergency continues to develop and change day to day, we are recommending the following course of action be taken by building management and maintenance staff immediately: 

  • Ensure all elevators, entrance way doors, stair-rails, garbage rooms, mail rooms, card/game rooms and any other public common areas are cleaned several times daily concentrating on the locations where persons tend to touch frequently such as elevator floor buttons and walls. If your building operates a valet service, hand sanitizer should be made available. It is critical these locations receive your fullest attention to reduce the chance of contamination.   
  • Closure of building fitness/gyms: These areas are extremely high-risk locations due to the nature of the physical activity and the constant sharing of equipment by individuals. Wiping down of equipment with disinfectant is a good practice, but cannot be guaranteed in every location so it is the recommendation is to immediately close these areas until further notice.   
  • Out of town visitors / returning residents with suitcases entering the lobby should be asked by staff where they have been or are coming from for informational purposes, to ensure they are aware of health and safety protocols.

All other personal safety recommendations are still effect and should be followed to prevent being affected by this virus.
