Coronavirus: COVID19 – Community Response
By Chris Arvanitis, Executive Director                     April 7, 2021

1.      The World Health Organization has declared a worldwide pandemic of COVID-19 disease, also known as "novel coronavirus."

2.      The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a directive related to daily monitoring of personnel for symptoms concerning COVID-19.

3.      Effective April 7, 2021, the County of San Diego issued an updated Order of the Health Officer and Emergency Regulations (Effective April 7, 2021). In accordance with this Order, the actions outlined within this guideline are necessary to reduce the number of individuals who will be exposed to COVID-19, and will thereby, slow the spread of COVID-19 in San Diego County. By reducing the spread of COVID-19, the San Diego County's Order will help preserve critical and limited healthcare capacity in the county and will save lives.

4.      These protocols are for the health and safety of all staff and community residents.  All employees are required to follow all state and local heath orders regarding social distancing requirements while not at work.  Failure to follow these orders places vulnerable residents and fellow co-workers at grave risk.
In accordance with state and local health department officials, the following changes to operations were implemented effective April 15, 2021: 


Real estate agents must contact the executive director regarding visitors, showings and any work to be performed by outside contractors at
