Masthope Update 5/30/20
BOD Update 05/29
The weekend before us marks the start of Masthope, together with the rest of Pike County, moving into the Yellow Phase under the Governor’s reopening plan.
Going through this pandemic is new for all of us. No one knew just a few months back what social distancing meant. No one ever had to plan through different phases to move from an almost complete shutdown of regular social and economic activity to a more and more open condition.
Your Board and Management Team are doing their best to bring the mountain back to its full potential and at the same time abiding by the Governor’s orders. The new plan for access rules to our amenities which we published at the beginning of the week is an example of our collective efforts to safely reopen our community. The plan is also rooted in available guidance, from state authorities, from the CDC, and from our own counsel.
The Board and Management will closely monitor the activity at the amenities. If the amenity usage and capacity goals are found to be out of line with the current plan, we will modify and further refine the rules to create a better balance of safety and enjoyment. Our first and foremost concern is for the health and safety of staff and homeowners using the amenities, and our primary focus are property owners. If those concerns indicate that we need to limit amenity access for renters and for guests, we will do so if it can be done with limited risk to the community. The next couple of early summer weeks should help us to define a plan that can work as the community moves to the busier part of the summer.
We have also stated from the beginning that we will be vigilant and flexible in our sincere attempt to keep up with changing regulations, guidance, and orders from the Federal, State and Local government leadership. It is everyone’s hope that we get to the green phase soon, and that phase will be the next step to more normal operations. There is no timeline when that will happen, and there is no detailed guidance on what the next phases will mean for Masthope, but we will do our best to stay informed and keep you informed. We respectfully ask for your patience, understanding and help as we navigate this challenging time together.
We encourage everyone to practice social distancing, wear masks (when social distancing is not possible) and wash your hands regularly for your own safety and the safety of others.
Stay safe and healthy.
