Regarding COVID-19 testing and notification:
It is highly unlikely that the Association would be notified of a positive test by the Arizona Department of Health Services or any other authorized regulatory body. The Association is not legally authorized to disclose personal health information and would be in violation of health privacy laws.
 
Please exhibit an extra level of care for your family, friends, and neighbors. Practice good health habits now and in the future.  The Department of Health & Human Services suggests to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 or any of the many existing respiratory diseases now or in the future:
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Residents,
The Sunland Village Board of Directors met on March 31st to reevaluate the current situation regarding the facilities that are closed as a result of COVID-19. The Board decided the following:
 
That all Sunland Village facilities will remain closed and activities canceled until at least April 14, 2020.
 
Until further notice, the Association office will remain closed, to walk-in traffic. Residents should make an appointment before coming to the office. The majority of the Association business can be conducted online or over the phone.
 
The decision to cancel events and close facilities have been taken to limit the potential spread of the virus. This decision was not taken lightly and many factors have been weighed. The large groups that congregate at our centers and the demographics of our population make Sunland Village a vulnerable community to COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
 
We recognize that the constantly changing COVID-19 situation is a time that for many is filled with uncertainty.
 
Please be assured that the Association is fully prepared to meet the needs of the business and has taken actions to ensure continued service to our residents. We are prepared to serve you while protecting everyone’s health.
 
For homeowners with Architectural requests and other Sunland Village business, please contact the office, 480-832-9003.  Forms can be found on SVCA Association Page.
 
Per the CDC (www.cdc.gov/COVID19), older adults and those with a chronic medical condition such as heart disease, diabetes or lung disease are at higher risk for COVID-19 complications.
 
The Department of Health & Human Services suggests to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 or any of the many existing respiratory diseases now or in the future:
  • Stay home when you are sick, except to get medical care.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
The board of directors and management remains vigilant and is monitoring the situation and responding as rapidly as conditions evolve.
We ask for your patience during these trying times. Please exhibit an extra level of care for your family, friends, and neighbors.
Please be safe and stay healthy.
Sincerely,

IMPORTANT Message from SVCA Board of Directors
This important message is being sent after much thought and discussion among Management and the Board of Directors. This decision was not taken lightly, by any means, and many factors have been weighed. The large groups that congregate at our centers and the demographics of our population make Sunland Village a very vulnerable community to COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
 
Having said that, all Sunland Village Recreation Centers will CLOSE Monday, March 16th at 4 pm. The Board will reevaluate the situation on March 31st. This is being done to ensure the health and welfare of the residents of this community.
 
Interaction between people and groups within close quarters are of major concern right now. Management cannot effectively monitor and ensure that visitors to the centers are practicing proper hygiene or preventive measures but can only make suggestions which is why the decision to CLOSE the centers has been made.
 
What does this mean to you?
All Sunland Village events are canceled.
 
All facilities including; pools, the fitness center, sports courts, indoor rooms, etc will be closed.
Until further notice, the Association office will be closed, to walk-in traffic. Residents should make an appointment before coming to the office. The majority of the Association business can be conducted online or over the phone. This action is not taken lightly, however, Management and the Board of Directors feel that it is in the best interest of the Association staff and residents.  For homeowners with Architectural requests, please contact the office, 480-832-9003.
 
It means that the centers will not be accessible by any resident during this time. There will be no events, shows or any activity as the centers will be closed. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS made to this closure.
This is a serious time that calls for serious measures that you may or may not have encountered before. We hope for your assistance by getting your cooperation rather than pushback. This is for the good of the Community and in line with how other entities, much larger than Sunland Village Community Association, are handling this pandemic.
 
We are fully considering the Sunland Village population at this time, understanding that individuals or some smaller groups may not be happy about this decision. We are keeping the entire community's best interest at the forefront of this decision.
 
Staff will be utilizing this time to do a thorough, deep cleaning of all areas within the centers including, but not limited to, all hard surfaces such as countertops, doorknobs and handles, desks/work stations, computers, keyboards, remote controls, thermostats, tabletops, handrails, audio / visual equipment, restrooms, etc.
 
We pledge to keep our residents updated on all developments related to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and how it affects Sunland Village operations. We are monitoring all communications from WHO, CDC, and other authorized organizations.
 
Please continue to monitor our website and emails for additional information and updates to our operations.
We appreciate your patience during this time and your understanding of the measures we are taking to keep our residents and staff safe and healthy.
