                    Holidays & Covid 19 Petra Quarantine Updates

We would all agree it’s been a long, difficult year and we’re anxious to greet 2021 hoping for better times.  Having missed most of 2020’s holidays, almost everyone is of the mindset that we will be celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas.  We long to gather with family and friends.  Of course, we must acknowledge that with family gatherings come the higher risk of exposure to COVID.  With this in mind, Petra is implementing a pro active Holiday Quarantine for staff.  Beginning November 30 –   January 18, the Petra staff will be working virtually and implementing additional safety protocols.  What does this mean?

Maintenance Staff – The maintenance staff will only be responding to essential work orders.  Please continue to submit your work orders as usual and those deemed essential will be responded to in a timely manner.  When staff responds to a work order in your apartment, they will take every precaution to protect themselves and you.  They will wear a mask and social distance if at all possible.  Petra is asking all residents to wear a mask when maintenance is in your apartment or if wearing a mask is not possible, please exit the apartment until the work order is complete.

Office Staff – During the quarantine time, the office staff will be working from home during regular business hours.  Phone and emails will be responded to in real time.  Please do not hesitate to call. Staff will periodically come into the office to perform essential functions but the office staff will not be available for interaction with residents.   Recertifications will continue to be contactless as they have been for most of 2020.

Management– Lease compliance will continue to be enforced.  We encourage residents to submit incident report forms and contact us with concerns such as smoking within the building, garbage in the recycling totes, parking concerns, disrespect for the premises, etc. Cooperation with these house rules help insure the safety of all our residents.

Residents – In accordance with the most recent Mask Mandate from the Governor’s office, Petra is asking ALL individuals entering the building or remaining in common areas to wear a mask. Additionally, we encourage those of you who will spend the holidays with extended family, to consider a voluntary self quarantine following your gatherings.  The CDC suggests a 14 day quarantine.  During that time we encourage you to limit your interaction with other residents, wear a mask and practice social distancing.

Above all we wish you  and your families a blessed Thanksgiving Holiday!
