March 17, 2020: Community Update on COVID-19 (AKA the coronavirus)
Following up on correspondence sent late last week, we are letting residents know that we continue to monitor the latest developments and are following guidance provided by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), the Tennessee Department of State Health Services (TDSHS) and local health departments as it relates to the COVID-19 (coronavirus).
As always, we are concerned with the health and safety of our residents and their guests. Based on the recent CDC guideline that no more than 10 should congregate, we strongly believe that in order to keep our residents safe we must take additional measures.
Effective today, March 17, 2020, we will be closing our amenities (Farmhouse, Fitness Center, pools, splash pad and playgrounds) and having all staff members work from home until further notice.
Please note we will continue to do the following:
· We will continue to maintain the facilities and take care of the business of the Association.
· Our staff members will continue to be available via phone and email;

Currently, a vaccine is not available that will prevent COVID-19 infection. As recommended by CDC and WHO, persons can lower their risk of infection by doing the following:
o Avoid close contact with people who are sick;
o Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds;
o Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer;
o Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth;
o Cover your mouth by sneezing or coughing into your arm; and
o Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and/or surfaces.
For additional information about COVID-19, please read the latest report from the Center of Disease Control at www.cdc.gov . Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.
Management will continue to provide updates as necessary and as new information is received.
Thank you for your continued understanding and cooperation during this challenging time. The welfare and safety of our residents and staff is of primary importance to everyone here at Durham Farms.
