Limited Clubhouse Re-Opening

TO : All Hidden Ridge Owners

From : Jim Lincoln – President of Hidden Ridge RCA
Date : May 22, 2020
Subject : Pool, Sauna, Hot Tub and Showers To Remain Closed

As much as I do not want to tell you this, the BOD has decided to keep the Pool, Sauna, Hot Tub and Showers closed until further notice. We will open the Clubhouse Community Room subject to conditions of no more than 10 people in the clubhouse at a time and abiding by social distance guidelines of 6 feet. The 3 BOD of directors on the COVID19 committee met yesterday and made this set of restrictions and guidelines.

  1. The pool, hot tub and sauna will remain closed indefinitely.  We do not have employees to be able to clean and disinfect per the guidelines, nor confident that the social distancing and use by single household(s) would be maintained.  We have looked at both the Sturgeon Bay YMCA (closed until July 1st at least) and the Green Bay YMCA, opening June 1 but with restrictions including requiring a reservation and closing for mid-day cleaning for guidance on safe opening and best practices.
  2. The shower rooms will also be closed for the duration of the pool closure.  The stand-alone men and women bathrooms will be available.
  3. The Community Room and the Library areas will open as soon as we can have them cleaned and sanitized.  Maximum capacity is 10. No group reservations are being accepted at this time.
  4. The new hours of operation of the Clubhouse area that is open is 8AM to 9PM.  Before 8AM or after 9PM your entry code will not work.  Internet is accessible, in an emergency after hours from the parking lot.

 

We know that not every one will be in agreement with these decisions.  The Board of Directors has given careful consideration to these actions and feel that this is in the best interest of ALL of the Owners at Hidden Ridge.  Even though the Safer-At-Home Order has been lifted, the COVID-19 cases are still on the rise in Wisconsin and in Door County.  It is only by all of us working together, wearing a mask when in public or interacting with others and maintaining social distancing that we will flatten this upward trend.  And frankly, it may take all summer, which is why so many of our favorite community activities have been cancelled this year.

ALL OF THE ABOVE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE OR MODIFICATION AS IS NECESSARY FOR SAFETY AND AS CONDITIONS AND THE SITUATION DICTATES.  WE WILL MEET AS FREQUENTLY AS IS NECESSARY TO REVIEW AND MODIFY.

Please understand that we are not intending to police this policy and will rely completely on each owner, their family and guests to do the proper thing and abide by these restrictions.

As always if you have questions, comments or concerns please contact me directly.
