Letter from the President

Dear Aldersly Residents and Families,

We are all excited about moving into the 3-B Orange phase with further easing of the COVID-19 restrictions. Gilbert and his entire staff have worked very hard to protect the community by adhering to the guidelines of wearing masks, washing hands and maintaining social distance. As a resident, you have done your part to protect yourself and your neighbors, and you have endured a long year of separation from your friends and family. No one wants to go back to another round of such restrictions.

Now that almost all of us have been vaccinated, it is easy to become complacent, thinking that we are home free and can begin to live our lives as we did before the virus turned our world upside down. However, we’re not quite there yet. I would like to make sure that we get there, but I need your help. Please remember that until we have 100% vaccination, there remains a potential for transmission.

It has come to my attention that some residents have decided that wearing a mask in our common areas is not important to them. This is not OK. We like to refer to our community as family, and although you may have been vaccinated and are feeling fine yourself, we have a responsibility to each other as part of our community.

The Board is holding our management and staff responsible for ensuring your safety by publishing guidelines, which are shared with everyone in weekly letters, voice-friend messages and posted online and in print in common areas. I really would like for the management and staff not to have to spend time policing these safety rules. So please help Gilbert, his staff and yourself by supporting our common goal to get back to normal as soon as possible.

We are all responsible as individuals and as community members to care for the safety of each other.

Thank you for your efforts,

Peter Schakow
President of the Board

Medical Director
