Subject: Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Per our last communication, we are continuing to closely monitor developments with Coronavirus (COVID-19). As you are aware, there are now identified cases of COVID-19 in Florida and we are continuing to stay in real-time communication with the CDC, Florida Department of Health and applicable county agencies on any further advice or specific building-wide steps to take.
At this time, the advice remains to use common approaches to avoid the spread of the virus including routinely disinfecting common areas. We have released information on specific steps for residents and building staff members to take. AKAM is also taking the following on-going and proactive steps:
- We will continue to monitor new developments as related to specific property-wide operational instructions issued by City, County, State and Federal agencies
- Utilizing our experience with prior events that caused or had the potential to cause interruptions of property operations, we are developing a specific preparedness guide for residents and staff members for distribution, if necessary
- Contingency staffing plans are being prepared for both AKAM staff and building service workers
Under any circumstances, AKAM’s primary objective will be to keep the ongoing operations of your property in as close to normal day-to-day operations as possible. We will utilize all available resources to ensure that the property remains secure, essential systems continue operating properly, and that there is on-going communication with your Board, on-site staff and residents.
For information and guidance on personally coping with COVID-19, we encourage you to continually monitor the websites of Florida’s Department of Health and other related government agencies.
Please feel free to contact your Management Executive or myself should you have any immediate questions or concerns. Our hope is that day to day operations remain unaffected throughout this time, however, please be assured that our response to any disruptions to building operations will be proactive and thorough.
