Coronavirus (COVID19)

Staff continues to participate in virtual CEMA meetings as well as hold virtual EAT meetings. The third meeting for the EAT was held on Tuesday, March 24. There were 32 people from various entities in attendance during the session. Topics discussed include an update of the current situation as well as continued prevention measures taken by group members.

Additional measures have been taken for the health and safety of everyone. Association employees began working remotely on Wednesday, March 25. Due to personal protective equipment (PPE) shortages, Security personnel will no longer be responding directly to medical calls but will continue to provide escorts for ambulances depending on staffing levels. Critical workforce security staff volunteers have been identified, and two homes allocated to stay on property if warranted. Chatham County Police Department (CCPD) and Chatham County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) also have been placed on standby for potential off-duty officers to assist with patrol operations.
