Your condo building can still enforce you to wear masks (FL)

Although there are new mask guidances in place for fully vaccinated people (they no longer have to wear masks in certain settings), vaccinated people living in condominiums are now facing a new predicament — the government says they don’t have to wear masks if they are vaccinated, so, do they have to wear them in their own condo?   Read the entire article………………………………. https://communityassociations.net/category/fl_news/feed/

Some Florida HOAs won’t reopen pools because of COVID-19

Public pools, operated by cities and counties in South Florida, have mostly resumed operations after initial closings last year, and so have the amenities owned by many homeowners’ associations, such as parks and tennis courts.

Should a Condo or HOA require proof of vaccination to use the common facilities? (FL)

Now that a lot of the population is getting a COVID vaccination, we are hearing that a few Boards of Directors of area Condominium or Homeowners’ (HOA) Associations are floating the idea of considering requiring proof of vaccination for owners, family members, tenants and guests in order to use the common area amenities such as the clubhouse, social room, fitness room or swimming pool.   Read the entire article………………………………. https://communityassociations.net/category/fl_news/feed/

Condos and HOAs may be able to limit guest access due to Coronavirus (FL)

Perhaps the most common question I have received over the past several months is whether the letter writer’s community association can prevent them from having guests in their home in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
