Palm Greens Recreation Condominium Association – Pool and Tennis Court Closures – Status Update
The past two months have been a difficult time for all concerned. As many of our residents are aware Miami Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County are at the epicenter of the outbreak in Florida. Accordingly, the Governor has exempted those counties from many of his statewide orders, and allowed those counties to regulate the closure and re-opening of various facilities, including community pools and tennis courts.
Palm Beach County recently authorized the limited re-opening of community pools and tennis courts. However, in order to reduce the risk of the virus transmission, the County’s order requires that the operators of those facilities ensure that social distancing, CDC guidelines and various County imposed conditions on the use of such facilities are complied with.
User self-monitoring does not satisfy the County Order, and there is no doubt that incidents of non-compliance would significantly increase the risk for the further spread of the virus and endanger the wider community.
As you know, the Palm Greens pool and tennis courts are unstaffed. Our budget makes no provision for the retention of monitors. Many 55 and older communities in our area have declined to open their pools and tennis courts for at least the balance of this month, due to the lack of facility monitors and the risk that the virus poses to persons over the age of 60.
The Palm Greens Recreation Association Board has carefully considered whether we can and should reopen the pool and/or tennis courts, and if so when. The Board has concluded that those facilities should remain closed for now. The Board will revisit this issue at the end of May. We believe that this decision is in the best interests of the residents of Palm Greens and the wider community.
We realize that this decision will disappoint some and be met with relief by others. Either way, we wish to thank each and every resident for your patience, cooperation, understanding and support.
