Dear Village Homes Friends and Neighbors,

At this time, the Board would like to update you on changes we are instituting to protect our office and landscape staff from coronavirus, and to reduce risks to the community as we go about our daily lives and business. Also, we want to share some thoughts about how we might all support one another in these challenging times.

As a caveat, things are changing fast. We are listening to public health officials and the Governor, and doing our best to follow their leads. At the same time, we want to take initiative and additional steps for the good of our Village Homes community and community at large.

Below is our status today regarding staff, facilities, and activities:

NOTE: all VH staff will follow directives from Yolo County Public Health, including: regular hand-washing; social distancing (6 feet); sanitizing of surfaces and equipment; and not coming to work if sick or directly exposed.

  • Village Office - 
    • For now, Emily will continue to come to work, under a “no open door” policy
    • We encourage everyone to communicate with the office via phone or email as possible: Emily villagehomes.manager@gmail.com and Frances vha.bookkeeper@gmail.com  office phone 530-753-6345
    • Documents may be put under the door or left in the VHA drop slot outside the building
  • Landscape Team -
    • Todd and the team (Jose, Tyler and Addison) will continue to work, since the majority of their work is outdoors in the fresh air
    • We ask that community members maintain six feet of distance when you encounter them around the grounds and do not enter the landscape shed
    • They will be wiping down daily the dog bag stations, library boxes, and other frequently touched community surfaces
    • Todd is available by email and checks in regularly: vha.landscape@gmail.com
  • Community Center and Oakenshield Room -
    • Effective immediately, we are cancelling all use for the remainder of March.
    • We will reconsider use after that time, as information and direction from public health officials evolves
  • Community Organizing -
    • The Board encourages residents to support one another, especially our older residents and those who may be sick or otherwise isolating at home.  We have already heard from residents that are willing to shop for other VH residents.
    • One suggestion we have for organizing and sharing the volume of support activities is for common area neighbors to find ways of assisting those in their commons - offering to shop, run errands, drop off meals, etc. We say this with the caveat that you do so only if you are well and still practicing social distancing, hand washing, and sanitizing of items exchanged.

In the coming days the Board will be following directives from public health officials and gathering and fleshing out ideas for how we can support one another. We invite you into this conversation and look forward to hearing your ideas.  The blog on our website is a good location for this sharing.  Here is the link: http://villagehomes.hoaspace.com/cgi-bin/bbs/YaBB.pl?board=sharingarespons_TJXS5E4C&category=community  Please contact the office if you have trouble with the link.

In closing, we all need to stay in touch and look out for one another. Let’s be proactive, creative, and innovative. Let’s not forget to smile at each other, offer help as we can, and stay positive.  Together we will all get through this.

Stay kind, stay strong, and stay well,

Your VHA Board
