The RDEK Board of Directors has unanimously passed a resolution calling on the Provincial Health Officer to introduce stronger measures and provide additional clarity around travel between communities in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“As a region we are united in our desire to reduce the impacts of this virus on our health care system and our communities,” says RDEK Board Chair Rob Gay. “While the Provincial Health Officers on both sides of the border have been clear in their messaging that people need to be staying home, that message is not being heeded. We are gravely concerned about the potential impacts on our small rural hospitals, front line workers and communities.”
To that end, the Board will be sending a letter calling on the Provincial Health Officer to implement additional measures, such as closure of the Provincial border to non-essential traffic, closure of private campgrounds and closure of the backcountry to overnight camping, be put in place to limit the influx of travel to and within, and gathering in, the region during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are urging all non-resident property owners in our region to please stay in their primary homes. There should be absolutely no travelling back and forth. In addition, we are seeing groups of campers in the backcountry, groups of mudboggers in the Koocanusa area, several families staying together in vacation homes, and more. The Provincial Health Officer has stressed repeatedly that, while the order has only banned events of more than fifty people, there should be no group gatherings of any size. Every interaction with others increases the potential for the spread of infection and this behaviour needs to stop,” stresses Gay. “We want to be very clear that this is not a province to province issue. This is also about behaviours locally within our region.”
The RDEK Board, which represents all of the rural areas and municipalities within the East Kootenay, is hoping to see additional measures and clarity from the Provincial Health Officer sooner than later. “Under the Provincial State of Emergency, local governments do not have the tools to make these changes ourselves, but we are pleading with the Province to act now to help us prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our corner of the Province,” says Gay.
Easter weekend typically sees a surge of thousands of recreationalists and second home owners coming to East Kootenay. There is concern emergency services, the health care system, local grocery stores and other essential service providers simply will not be equipped to handle an influx of people at this time and under these extraordinary circumstances. “This is about making a conscious choice to stay home and stay safe,” adds Gay. “We are asking the Provincial Health Officer to introduce new measures that will prevent all non-essential travel and make it clearer that we need to stay home.”
As the COVID-49 situation continues to evolve quickly, we wanted to provide an update on the additional measures the volunteer Strata Board is taking to keep owners, tenants and our property managers/caretakers safe through this challenging time.
The Strata Property Manager/Caretaker will be increase the cleaning of all high touch surfaces, such as but not limited to elevator buttons, all door handles / knobs, key pads, including ones in the main lobby of all buildings, stairwells, and garbage buildings. Additionally, all floors will be vacuumed, mopped at least 3 times a week or more frequently if required.
Once the back ordered hand sanitizer dispensers and solution arrives the strata will install them in each building for owners to use when they enter the building. We are hoping these will arrive either this week or in the next couple of weeks.
In the interim we ask everyone to follow the COVID-19 Prevention protocols to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. This is the single most effective way of reducing he spread of infection.
- If soap and water are not available, alcohol based hand rubs can be used to clean your hands.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
- Practice physical/social distancing – minimum 2 meters
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash or into your elbow if you do not have a tissue.
- Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
- Do not share food, drinks, utensils, etc.
- Stay home and do not leave your home if you are or feel sick.
For additional measures please refer to BC Center for Disease Control for additional information on COVID 19 and how to protect yourself , your family and your community.
Your volunteer board of directors is making every effort to stay apprised of the ongoing evolution of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic situation and its potential impact on our condominium complex.
On March 21, 2020 the volunteer board notified owners that the AGM to be held on Saturday March 28, 2020 was cancelled due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its isolation requirements.
The volunteer board has obtained connected and obtained advice from CHOA on how to proceed with this year’s AGM during this unprecedented time. As a result of this pandemic, there will be no in person meeting held with owners and instead there will be a Special General Meeting by restricted proxy.
The restricted proxy will include all the motions that owners will need to vote on.
The Notice Package and Restricted Proxy will be sent to the owners by either email or physical mail depending if we have their consent to email on file by April 1st. The previous proxy we received will be void as all owners must send in a signed and complete restricted proxy form and vote on each motion presented.
Owners who have questions around the AGM package sent on March 12, 2020 or the new restricted proxy package that will be sent out on April 1st can contact the board by email email@example.com or call the Strata toll free number 1-866-364-7424 and choose option 3 and leave a message and a board member will respond within 48 hours.
The board will tabulate the proxies and review and report all resolutions at the Wednesday April 22, 2020 @ 7pm Board meeting.
We once again ask all owners to send in consent to receive notifications by email so we do not have to mail out the physical form to owners and incur the associated costs.
An email has been sent to all owners with a email on file with the special AGM board meeting minutes from yesterday March 24, 2020 which details the advice provided my CHOA on how to proceed. Along with the original AGM package for your reference. This information is also on the Owner Info page.
Additionally, owners can go onto CHOA website and review the COVID-19. Bulletins & Information for Managing Meetings During this Crisis.
The Board appreciates everyone’s understanding and patience during this unprecedented time and hopes all owners stay safe and healthy.
