Building Operations II

posted Apr 14, 2020, 5:37 AM by Marc Donner   [ updated Apr 14, 2020, 5:41 AM ]

A lot has changed in the four weeks since our first building operations update.  The board and management of the building has learned a lot, and external public health and public safety agencies have been sharing what they have learned in the form of advice and guidance.

Masks and face coverings

The CDC now strongly recommends that people wear masks or other suitable face covering when going out of their residences.

205 has adopted a policy that all people without face covering will be stopped at the lobby entrance.

205’s COVID-19 Archive

The Board, Building Management, LTCA, and various public health agencies have written information and advice that we have chosen to share over BuildingLink and with paper postings in the mail rooms.

There are now so many of them that we have undertaken to accumulate an archive.  These documents are now available on the 205 West End website (205westend.com) here: 205westend.com/home/covid-19-communications.

A couple of the items in the archive are not published for policy or privacy reasons.

Laundry Room online monitoring

When we recently signed our new laundry room contract we asked for and received web-based access to the status of the machines.  You can go here: [REDACTED]. To identify our laundry room, you enter in the password field the string [REDACTED] (capitalization matters).  You can view individual machines in both the east and west rooms.

Using this you can see whether there are machines available.  And if you note which machines you are using, you can check whether your washing or drying is done.  This will help maintain proper social distancing in the laundry rooms. The alert service is not functional, unfortunately.

Ideas for amusement while at home

If you have links to entertaining and inexpensive or free entertainments that you are enjoying during this time, please share them with your neighbors on BuildingLink.
