We've Got You
The safety and wellbeing of our residents are always our top priority. As you
are well aware, Coronavirus (or COVID-19) is an increasingly significant
concern in the U.S. – including college campuses. Rest assured, our property
will remain open for our tenants. We are aware of a number of universities
taking action to curb face-to face contact in larger-scale settings and we ask
that residents exercise the same level of precaution within our building.
How We Are Taking Action
We are taking additional steps to maintain a clean environment and enhance
resident safety, including:
For the time being, out of an abundance of caution, we have closed our
Cleaning public touch points, such as doorknobs, handrails, elevator buttons
and other surfaces several times throughout the day.
We sourced hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes and have made them
available in the common areas for residents to use and have encouraged them
to do the same.
We’ve hired additional cleaning staff and have directed our own
employees to clean the common spaces more frequently and the teams have
adjusted cleaning products to comply with CDC recommendations.
To practice effective social distancing, we have officially gone to
contact-free offices meaning all leasing, and in-person communication has
moved to online channels.
In an effort to reduce unnecessary persons in the building, non-essential
work orders will be processed at a later time and we have implemented
maintenance work orders for only emergency/essential items. Maintenance
Screen prior to entry and have asked that residents remain in a
different room while staff is completing in unit work.
- Use gloves where appropriate.
- Test virtual work orders on select work orders.
Use a “hazmat” suites in case there is an emergency work
order in an affected unit.
Being mindful of your surroundings and taking basic precautions will help our
residents protect themselves and others from this virus. During this time,
until further notice, we have asked that all residents limit unnecessary
guests to their apartment. In addition and in accordance of their lease,
residents have been asked to refrain from inviting anyone outside the current
lease to reside in your apartment.
The university and its on-campus health center, and the community health
department have stepped up their communications and recommendations. As
we've shared, we've asked residents to remain vigilant about their own
care and continue to look for useful advice being provided.
At our properties, we have adopted guidelines and recommendations from both
the CDC and the WHO.
U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Coronavirus:
World Health Organization (WHO):
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed.
As a reminder, the CDC recommends several simple actions to help prevent the
spread of respiratory diseases (such as Coronavirus), including:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your face: eyes, nose, mouth and ears.
If you are sick or think you may be sick, stay home, avoid others you live
with and clean any surfaces you might touch / infect. If you think you have
Coronavirus symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath – please
see: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/symptoms.html), please contact a healthcare professional immediately.
Cover your cough and/or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the
trash and wash your hands immediately after.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular
household cleaning spray or disinfectant wipe. Follow the CDC’s
recommendations for using a facemask:
The CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to
protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including COVID-19.
Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms of COVID-19 to help
prevent the spread of the disease to others. Anyone with symptoms should
seek medical care immediately.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds,
especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing
your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand
sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
Wash your hands with soap and water (when possible) or hand sanitizer if
they are visibly dirty.
While we are all facing unforeseen circumstances we will continue to put the
safety of our residents and our staff first. We appreciate your patience
as we continue to support our communities during this difficult time. For
