Many of the paseos and sidewalks within University Hills are not six feet or more wide. We have received feedback from residents who are concerned when they see other residents not wearing face coverings when walking around University Hills. Echoing guidance from the State of California, we remind all University Hills residents that it is required to
wear face coverings
when outside and when it is not possible to maintain six feet of distance between yourself and your neighbor. If you do not have a face covering, step off the sidewalk or paseo and allow the other person to pass. This is an easy, simple way to act as a community, respect the rights of others and slow the spread of Covid-19.

It is important to communicate with kids and teenagers and have conversations about online safety and privacy.
