To Our Residents,
As a valued Princeton Properties resident, it’s important that you know we are closely monitoring the circumstances related to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) as it evolves. Our primary concern is the health and wellbeing of our residents and employees. We want to assure you that Princeton Properties is committed to doing everything we can to help you stay well informed and healthy. Now is the time for all of us to play our part in minimizing the virus’ spread.
What We’re Doing:
We have been sourcing information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) to stay on top of this evolving situation. We are implementing recommended guidelines to mitigate exposure for our employees and following the CDC’s recommendations on steps we can take to help prevent the spread of the virus. For example, we’ve shared specific instructions with our employees on the importance of washing their hands and staying home if they feel sick. We are also actively reviewing our property cleaning protocols. This includes evaluating and modifying the frequency and intensity of office and common area cleanings as well as assuring that appropriate disinfecting products are specifically identified to be effective against the Coronavirus.
How You Can Help:
As residents, employees and community citizens we all share the responsibility to be vigilant in doing everything we can to combat this virus at home and at work. Following established hygiene practices and using good old fashion common sense will go a long way to accomplishing this goal. A reminder, based on the information from the CDC, WHO and other sources, it is thought that the most common way to contract the virus is through person-to-person contact.
Residents should be utilizing the Resident Portal to pay rent, submit work orders and communicate with our management teams in an effort to reduce visits to the on-site office. Continue to call in any emergency work orders, but please hold off on submitting non-emergency work orders to reduce visits into your apartments.
Here are further recommendations and guidance from the CDC:
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for a minimum of 20 seconds. If soap and water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Avoid physical contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue away.
- Have some extra (not excessive) food and supplies on hand.
- Frequently clean and disinfect touched objects and surfaces.
- Wash your hands or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer before and after touching building entry doors, common area doors, buzzers and keypads.
- If possible (and applicable) take the stairs instead of an elevator. When using an elevator, disinfect hands before and after pressing the call buttons.
- When using the fitness and laundry centers, wash hands before and after each use and try to avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
As with any medical situation involving your health, we strongly recommended that you consult with your own physician as to your personal condition and follow any additional steps they may recommend to take to be healthy and safe.
It is our goal to continue providing you the level of top service you expect, as we navigate together through this ever changing situation. We will continue to monitor the situation and stay current with advice from the CDC and public health officials. The health of our residents and our communities is our first priority. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your specific property management team!
