Resource Property Management Updated COVID-19 Protocol - July 29th 2021

ALL RPM EMPLOYEES – BOTH CORPORATE & ONSITE – REGARDLESS OF VACCINATION STATUS – ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A CDC-APPROVED FACE MASK WHILE INDOORS.

We have updated our protocol out of an abundance of caution due to the recent increase in positive cases of the more contagious Delta variant and updated CDC guidelines published earlier this week.

CORPORATE OFFICES::

FULLY VACCINATED STAFF:
 Must wear a face mask while indoors except when in their workstation or office.
 Managers are still permitted to attend in-person board meetings but are required to wear a mask.
 Exterior property inspections may be done without wearing a mask, as long you maintain social distancing from others. Masks are required for all interior property inspections.
 Managers are permitted to attend industry sponsored events, i.e., lunch and learns. However, our corporate policy states Managers must obtain their Supervisor’s approval before registering for special events held during business hours.

UNVACCINATED STAFF:
 Must wear a face mask while indoors except when in their workstation or office.
 Must maintain strict social distancing if eating lunch with other RPM employees.
 Masks are required at all times while on association property or while performing association or RPM business at any location; i.e. attending meetings, performing property inspections, etc.
 Attendance at industry sponsored events is not allowed, i.e., lunch and learns, during corporate hours.
 Managers are still permitted to attend in-person board meetings, however, face masks are still required at all times.

PUBLIC ACCESS TO CORPORATE OFFICES:
RPM corporate office doors are to remain locked. Visitors are permitted to enter if they are not symptomatic and agree to wear a mask at all times, whether or not they are vaccinated and must maintain social distancing.

ONSITE OFFICES:
 RPM onsite offices are to follow the updated corporate mask requirements outlined above for both employees and visitors.
 
NOTE: RPM recommends that boards obtain the guidance from the association’s attorney regarding decisions related to use restrictions, mask mandates, and Association Amenities.

Our goal is to provide a safe and healthy work environment. Through the steps outlined above, we hope to continue to reduce the risk of future outbreaks within our offices.

We understand that not everyone is comfortable receiving the COVID vaccine due to a variety of personal or health-related reasons. However, RPM strongly advocates that employees, who are willing and able to do so, obtain their vaccination ASAP.

HURRICANE SEASON 2021

HURRICANE SEASON 2021
 
Hurricane season starts June 1 and runs through November 30th.
 
Now is the time to plan what you will do if a Hurricane is forecast to hit the Tampa Bay area. If an evacuation order is issued, Palm Hill is a mandatory evacuation zone as are all mobile home communities. Should you choose to remain in the park and need medical or emergency assistance, the authorities will not respond as they will be dealing with other emergencies and you should have heeded the evacuation order.
 
The nearest shelter is Largo High School 410 Missouri N. Largo; this is a pet friendly shelter but will probably fill up quickly. The 2 Clubhouses here in Palm Hill are not rated as hurricane shelters and therefore cannot be used by residents as a shelter. Due to Liability issues both clubhouses will be locked down when an evacuation order is issued.
 
Ensure that your gutters are cleaned out and any pots, chairs, planters or anything that may become airborne are stored either in the shed or inside the mobile. Maintenance is responsible for ensuring that the common areas are secured.

Basket Raffle

Happy to announce an upcoming BASKET RAFFLE. 
Lynn Burns, 612-321-6223 or Linda Keehl, 612-616-2701
 
The date for the basket raffle is to be determined because it rests on how quickly and efficiently we can collect all the needed items to assemble the baskets.  There will be ten baskets in all.  They are themed according to things that may be of interest to all of us.  Raffle tickets will be available for purchase at other events that we are having - and at the morning coffee on Monday's and Wednesday mornings.  Some themes are a Grandchild Basket, Golf Basket, Kitchen Basket, Hot Sauce Basket, etc.  
 
There will be a list in each of the clubhouses on the bulletin boards for the donation of the needed items.  There will be boxes for the items to be placed in as they are purchased.  Most of the items are very reasonably priced items so that more than one item may be donated per person, if desired.  Please cross off the items as you purchase them and add them to the boxes just in case you are able to help.  
 
When all of the basket items are collected, they will be assembled and displayed in one of the clubhouses prior to the BASKET RAFFLE EVENT.   Please look for near-future communication regarding the baskets. Any questions should be directed to Lynn Burns or Linda Keehl.  We thank you in advance for your generous item donations.  This should be a fun and exciting event for all of us.  There's something for everyone.

GEORGEANNE’S HELPING HANDS
Ted Silva, 508-965-6072
For the immediate future we are only bringing residents to medical appointments with a priority at getting to Covid vaccine appointments.
But as more volunteers get vaccinated, we will slowly be increasing our ability to help you get where you need to go.
At this point, we are only using volunteers who have been vaccinated and waited the required time period. Face masks will still be required at all times by everyone during these transports regardless of vaccination status. 
If you need transportation to a medical appointment or vaccine site, please call as soon as possible: Ted Silva, 508-965-6072.
We encourage residents to shop “on-line” with home delivery of food through the supermarkets that offer thoseservices, such as Publix and Walmart. Some residents have been using “Care Ride” - 727-536-7453 or 727- 866-1193. 
 
“PALM HILL CALLING”
The purpose of the project is to make sure that everyone has contact with someone at least once a day. Most people have friends or neighbors, and they routinely check on each other. The names of 40 people are on the list for a call from a Palm Hill volunteer.
Palm Hill Calling is available to anyone interested in having this service whether they are a shareholder or renter, full time or seasonal. To get on the call list call Ted Silva at 508-965-6072.

MESCO – SERVICES CLOSED 
From Linda Simon, former MESCO president, 727-559-0164, 73 Royal Palm
The MESCO organization is closed. Please, if you have a key, do NOT go into the building under any circumstances. If you have any equipment signed out, keep it at your home.
Due to changes in the law, liability problems and records that were not kept in the past, the present board of MESCO had no choice but to resign and close the services.

Peggy Novara, 716-903-2844 and 727-581-6739
Call Largo Police at 727-587-6730 to report suspicious activity. Dial 911 for an emergency or a crime in progress.
It is very important to leave outdoor lights on at night, keep house and car doors locked at all times and always be alert. Bikes and golf carts should always be locked also.
