If You Should Have Symptoms ...

(Originally posted 2020-03-18)

Here is the latest update from the Board and Management of the Cooperative concerning quarantine in case of a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 infection.  This guidance is adapted from CDC and Department of Health guidance.

Please follow this guidance closely for both your own benefit as well as for our entire community.  The guidelines are designed to minimize the risk of spreading the virus.

If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms or not feeling well, please contact your health care provider or call 311.

If it is necessary to travel out of the building for testing, please follow proper hygiene and common sense by covering your mouth with a mask or piece of clothing, wearing gloves, traveling in the elevator alone and practice social distancing.

Contact the front desk if you need the elevator dedicated to you and staff will arrange to take one out of general service for your trip and clean it afterwards.

Please immediately inform the building’s Resident Manager (residentmanager@205westend.com) and Management Executive (managingagent@205westend.com) if anyone in your household tests positive or has been exposed to the virus and must be quarantined per the CDC and DOH guidelines.

If you chose to voluntarily self-quarantine, please also notify by email same two people.  CDC guidance recommends such self-quarantine last 14 days.

In the case of a positive COVID-19 test result, the Cooperative and its staff will follow CDC and DOH instructions.

There are particular steps that must be taken by building staff if an apartment has occupants who are under quarantine.  These include placing deliveries at your door and  conducting a thorough cleaning of common areas that have been visited by the infected resident.

Thank you for paying close attention to these guidelines.  They are imposed for the safety of all residents and staff of the Cooperative.

Please send any questions or concerns by email to the Resident Manager, Management Executive, and directors.

We wish everyone comfort during these challenging times.
