Memorial Day Weekend 2020
Point Breeze Unit Owners:
On the eve of Memorial Day weekend I hope this note finds you all safe and healthy. As you are well aware, the COVID-19 outbreak has left us all in a continuously developing environment, with new information regarding the virus coming out almost daily. As a result of some of this newly released information, I would like to update my last note to you with some good news. Based upon new information from the State and Town, as well as from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we will be relaxing some of the guidelines we announced, previously.
As of this writing the Governor and the Town continue to recommend that anyone coming to New Hampshire/Wolfeboro from out of state should self-quarantine for two weeks upon arrival. We still share and endorse that recommendation. Having said that, though, we know that travel to places like the pharmacy, market, post office, etc., as well as movement around the Point Breeze property, are necessary, understandable and in some cases, even encouraged. Most now agree that outdoor movement and activities result in a very low probability of spreading/acquiring the virus. So, please enjoy our beautiful outdoors! We only ask that when you are on the property you continue to exercise good judgement and practice all social distancing and personal hygiene recommendations, like maintaining a safe distance from others on the property and the diligent washing of hands, for the protection of all here. Our beaches are open for the enjoyment of all of our residents, and their guests, but please avoid congregating in large numbers while enjoying the lake. Remember, social distancing is the key to us getting through this outbreak, and we are very fortunate that our property affords us the opportunities to spread out.
Regarding the collection of trash, because of the recent determination by the CDC that the “coronavirus does not spread easily” on surfaces, we will resume regular trash collections from all units. Having said that, though, we must insist that ALL Point Breeze trash collection guidelines be followed, including the appropriate sorting of recyclables and tying of trash bags. For your convenience, I have attached a copy of those guidelines for your review (they may also be found on our website). Adherence to these guidelines is always necessary for our compliance with the Town's solid waste dump rules but now, more than ever, adherence is even more important and essential for the protection and safety of our staff. If the trash is not presented properly, it will not be collected by the staff. Please make sure that all guests and/or renters in your unit are aware of this!
I am also happy to report that the center docks are in and ready for occupancy. If you are assigned a space on the center docks please feel free to put your boat in at any time. Others are welcomed to use unassigned spots on a first-come, first-served basis until the east and west docks are in.
I apologize for the seemingly endless changes and updates but, as I noted, the new reality in which we currently find ourselves is very fluid. I can tell you that the property is in wonderful shape, the weather has finally turned much more summer-like, and the lake is as wonderful as ever (albeit, still quite cold!). I look forward to seeing you all out and about (from a distance, of course) enjoying everything our wonderful property has to offer.
Happy Summer, happy Memorial Day, and all the best! Stay safe and healthy!
