As you may have seen, federal and state governments are beginning to release plans to reopen the economy to essential business. While this is an encouraging sign, we want to take a moment to explain what this means at WhiteStone. First and foremost, while we are all looking forward to the day when we can resume our lives as a community, take regular walks, and socialize with our friends, the health and safety of our residents and employees must remain our highest priority.
From the beginning, we have taken on this challenge as a marathon rather than a sprint. There are no short cuts or easy answers to how we reduce our risk to COVID-19 and it’s as important as ever that we continue to remain focused on protecting ourselves and supporting each other. To that end, here’s how we will handle the coming weeks: WhiteStone will continue to follow the heightened precautionary measures that we have in place at this time, including social distancing guidelines and restricting non-essential visitors.
We understand the risks posed to our community from COVID-19 and remain committed to our processes. We’ll only begin to shift our protocols after we know our community is no longer at risk, and with careful consideration of the recommendations of public health officials. As the situation develops, and we make changes to our protocols –but to reiterate, we will not be modifying our precautionary measures at this time.
Thank you again for your patience, your support, and for embodying that hopeful spirit that WhiteStone is known for as we continue to navigate this process together.
