March 16: Coronavirus Message from the Board
In a special meeting on March 16, the SROA Board of Directors unanimously approved the continued closure of the Sunriver Homeowners Aquatic & Recreation Center (SHARC) through Sunday, April 12. The closure includes ALL access to SHARC, including member/owners areas and all SHARC programming.
The board also approved the cancellation or postponement of any non-essential committee/task force meetings as well as SROA/SHARC events occurring within the next few weeks.
In order to help slow the spread of the coronavirus, health experts recommend creating "social distancing" from others for the next four to eight weeks.
“We can’t totally control all that goes on in Sunriver, but the goal is to lessen the exposure impacts within our own facilities,” said Keith Mobley, SROA Board President.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, SROA modified its administrative operations to follow Federal, State and Local directives and guidelines as closely as possible for the purpose of ensuring the security of all owners, visitors and employees of Sunriver.
SROA Board Direction
At an emergency meeting on Monday, March 16, 2020, the SROA Board of Directors ordered the following:
- The enactment of a temporary closure of SROA facilities to the public through April 12, 2020
- The facilities closures includes Administrative Buildings and SHARC.
- During this same time period, regular SROA committee and task force meetings, and other SROA events, have been cancelled until further notice.
- The April 12 timeline established for closures and alterations to operations and services may be amended by the Board President and General Manager.
The overarching goal for the actions by the Board of Directors is to:
- Protect the health, safety and welfare of the owners, visitors and employees of Sunriver, while ensuring that essential operations necessary to maintain properties and owner services are provided.
“The safety of our owners, and the public, is our primary focus and we are taking the federal, state and local recommendations very seriously,” said Hugh Palcic, SROA General Manager. “We encourage everyone to be self-responsible, stay home and limit their public exposure so we all can remain healthy, assist in suppressing the spread within the county and the state and, hopefully, keep it out of the Sunriver community altogether.”
