Condominium Recommendations 
  • Property managers and condominium associations should strongly encourage any condo owners or guests who are visiting from the geographic areas stated in the Governor’s Executive Order 20-80 to self-quarantine for two weeks and educate them as to the order.  

  • They should also consider CLOSING residential gyms if the building does not have sufficient dedicated resources, including maintenance/janitorial staff or cleaning supplies, to ensure the proper and thorough cleaning and disinfecting of all fitness equipment at least twice daily; and or
  • If the building does not have a sufficient amount of individual disinfecting wipes to permit residents using the gym to individually wipe down and disinfect all fitness equipment they use, both before and after such use; and or
  • If the building has a high proportion of residents in the building who are seniors, as such persons may be at a higher risk of COVID-19 infection if they were to use the fitness centers; and or
  • If the building does not have the staffing capability to monitor gyms to ensure proper distance separation, and to limit gatherings of people within gyms to no more than ten people at any given time.

  • Monitor gyms and pool areas to ensure proper distance separation, and to limit gatherings of people to no more than ten at any given time.
