Important information about SHARC
SHARC will be closed this weekend March13-15. The SHARC center will be closed to the public the weekend of March 14th-15th. The board members will gather on Monday to discuss next steps and possible later closures of the facility.
Earlier this morning we received a press release from SHARC stating the following:
The safety of our owners, and the public, is our primary focus and we are taking the governor’s recommendations very seriously,” said Hugh Palcic, SROA General Manager. Keith Mobley, president of SROA Board of Directors. “Facilities where large numbers of people gather deserve attention. SHARC is at the top of the list. For that, and other reasons, I am exercising my authority as president of the Sunriver Owners Association to order the temporary closure of that facility, until such time as the full board of directors may determine to be appropriate. Updates on SHARC and SROA operations will be posted, as available, on the SROA website at www.sunriverowners.org and Facebook.
In closing, have fun and be safe!
While there are varying opinions on what started the Corona Virus, most professionals agree that precautionary measures are a person’s best defense. Follow the CDC for daily updates on COVID-19 and take some common-sense approaches to wellness to help stay healthy.
- Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
- Avoid close contact with sick people.
- Discontinue the practice of shaking hands and perhaps opt to wave or elbow bump for a greeting.
- Keep tissues on hand to cover coughs and/or sneezes, discarding following use.
- Stay home if you are sick.
- Avoid touching your face, mouth and nose.
- Routinely disinfect items touched regularly (countertops, bathroom surfaces, personal cell phone, etc.).
Also, remember these important facts that have been stressed by the CDC.
- With regard to COVID-19, reported illnesses vary greatly between mild and severe. Some people have had little to no reported symptoms while others have been severe. Currently, information gathered suggests that MOST COVID-19 illness is mild (only 16% of cases have serious illness).
- Older people and those with underlying health conditions such as heart disease, lung disease and diabetes, to name a few, seem to be at a higher risk for serious illness.
- The immediate risk of being exposed to the virus currently is thought to be low for the majority of folks.
- The United States has not seen widespread circulation of COVID-19 in most communities at this time.
With no domestic travel restrictions at this time, plan that vacation and enjoy some time in your happy place, putting into practice these CDC-recommended tips for better health and wellness.
Again, this is an evolving situation. As you travel, take additional daily medications and over-the-counter meds you might need in case of a travel delay, and rely on CDC updates to stay well and safe. Maybe it’s time for a relaxing getaway from all of the hustle and bustle! We hope to see you soon!
