REVIEW HEALTH AND SAFETY PROCEDURES
2021 holds a lot of possibilities, and we cannot know for sure what may or may not happen as time passes, especially with this Pandemic. Condo managers are advised to modify building rules and regulations to require residents and staff to comply with all CDC protocols and government directives when in public areas.
The Condo board also has to decide their next course of action if;
● A unit owner does not comply with government directives or the building's rules and regulations are applicable to the current crisis.
● If exposure is confirmed in the property or if an employee/resident is diagnosed with COVID-19.
