WCA Owner/Tenant Contact Update Form

(click here)

Maintaining current contact information helps the board and its committees reach owners and tenants with important board announcements as well as during emergency events such as a water/gas main break or to report storm damage to vehicles or other property.  Each owner and paying tenant should complete a separate form.  Non-resident owners should enter their address at the end of the form.  Note: You do NOT need to have a Google account in order to update and submit the form.

Virginia Governor’s New Executive Order 61 - “Phase 1” reopening begins midnight on May 15, 202.

Bulletin from the law firm for the WCA:

On May 8, Governor Northam issued Executive Order 61 (EO61), which begins "Phase 1" of the Commonwealth's planned gradual reopening of certain businesses and activities.  EO61 goes into effect at midnight on May 15 and continues through June 10 (subject to change). However, some cities and counties (including Northern Virginia) are contemplating a delay in the Phase 1 reopening due to continuing COVID-19 infection trends, so it is important to monitor related announcements from local governments. 

Of particular interest to community associations, EO61 allows recreation centers, pools and certain sports and exercise facilities to reopen but only for outdoor activities and only if several significant restrictions are implements. Indoor recreational activities remain prohibited. In addition, keep in mind that the stay-at-home Order (EO55) still imposes social distancing requirements and still prohibits social gatherings of more than 10 individuals. 

Per EO61 and guidance published by the Governor's Office, the following are some of the mandates that must be followed when opening outdoor recreational facilities during Phase 1:

* Hot tubs, spas, splash pads, spray pools, interactive play featuresbasketball courts and racquetball courts must remain closed.  

* Outdoor swimming pools can open but for lap swimming only, with one person per lane. Indoor swimming pools and related areas must remain closed. 

* All seating in pool areas must remain closed

* Employees working in customer-facing areas must wear face coverings over their nose and mouth. Lifeguards responding to distressed swimmers are exempt from this requirement. 

* Must provide hand sanitizing stations, including at the entrance/exit. 

* Must strictly follow the physical distancing guidelines, enhanced cleaning and disinfection practices, and enhanced workplace safety practices provided in the "Guidelines for All Business Sectors" document located on the Governor's website (https://www.virginia.gov/coronavirus/forwardvirginia).

This information is also posted on our website at www.chadwickwashington.comFederal, state and local responses to COVID-19 continue to change frequently.
