**COVID-19 ** UPDATED PROTOCOLS AND GUIDELINES FOR OPENING OF PALM HILL FACILITIES EFFECTIVE 7/29/2021

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.
