As you may be aware, Contra Costa Health Services issued an updated shelter in place order that extends the basic restrictions until May 31st, while at the same time setting the stage for a “gradual resumption of activity” moving forward.
One part of this updated order that affected CHOA and its residents was regarding tennis courts. As of May 4th, Contra Costa County is permitting tennis courts to reopen.
Effective Monday, May 4th, the CHOA tennis courts will be open and available to all residents for use!
There are no changes to the entry system or the usual hours of operation. Residents will continue to use their fob for access to both the upper and lower courts, and they will be closed at 10pm nightly.
As we are in unprecedented territory with regards to our HOA facilities because of COVID-19, at this time the Board is following guidelines established by Contra Costa County in permitting the tennis courts to reopen.
However this does not mean we should let our guard down or neglect to continue practicing social distancing techniques and proper hand hygiene.
If you are planning on using the tennis courts moving forward, please ensure that you are diligent about sanitizing your hands when entering and exiting the courts, especially after using the handle to open the gate. We strongly recommend (and would very much appreciate) that tennis players bring hand sanitizer with them and use it liberally before and after visiting the CHOA tennis courts.
Please also refrain from playing in large groups or in anyway that might force players closer to one another than the current social distancing guidelines allow. As always, if you have any questions, please contact your GM at the Business Office! Thanks all, and stay safe!
