COVID-19 Update

PLA Property - New Rules for Community Safety

Friday, March 20, 2020

Dear PLA,

I hope this message finds you, your families and friends safe and healthy. We are obviously in uncharted waters and times right now.

We need to support, aid and protect our fellow neighbors during these times. Our governments (federal, state and local) have made several recommendations, from limiting the size of gatherings to social distancing to just staying at home. The PLA is following their guidance and recommending that you take the appropriate action to protect yourselves and others in our community and beyond. Especially important, if you are sick, you and your family, should all quarantine yourselves and remain at home. The same guidance holds if you have been in contact with someone who has Coronavirus (COVID-19).

To this end, the PLA is suspending all events on PLA property and asking that folks refrain from using PLA property until further notice. We will re-evaluate this at the end of April with the guidance of the governing bodies. I have received several reports from concerned members about folks gathering on our
beach, property or in the neighborhood. It is extremely important that folks respect the social distancing guidelines that are in place and heed them. Again, please do not congregate or spend time on PLA property, it is closed.

We apologize for any inconvenience this causes but are only doing this out of an abundance of caution and to follow in the footsteps of what the Town of Trumbull has enacted. As I’m sure you are aware, they have closed all parks and the NIA has closed their premises.

We will keep you informed on developments as we have them, including whether we will have our Board Meeting on April 7th.

Again, these measures are being made to keep you and your families safe. I hope that, come summertime, we are looking at all of this in the rear-view mirror while we enjoy our time at the beach and as a community.

Here are two local references on everything relating to the virus:

Yale New Haven Health  - Includes links to CDC and WHO
Town of Trumbull – make sure you are signed up for Trumbull Citizen Alert

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any concerns or questions. Please stay safe and healthy.
