If no specific orders have been issued by a governmental authority requiring closure of recreational facilities and amenities, we believe that boards still have the authority to close the association’s recreational facilities and amenities, based on emergency powers and in reliance on recommendations from healthcare professionals and Florida Emergency Management officials. Any unique factors relevant to the community should also be considered. For example, in a 55+ community, a large population of members may be considered high-risk should they contract the coronavirus. In a condominium building, recreational facilities may be located in close proximity to residential units where unit owners may have chosen or been instructed to quarantine. If a board decides to keep amenities open, consideration should be given to whether adequate staff is available to clean and sanitize the facilities and whether sufficient supplies of soap, paper towers and hand sanitizer are available to stock the facilities. Decisions should be reviewed as circumstances change. If a claim for injury is brought by any person against an association, liability, to the extent it exists, would likely be determined based on the standard of care that a reasonably prudent person would have taken in a like situation. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Sorry, you do not have a permission to answer to this question.
