ACC —The Anthem Community Council is committed to the health and safety of our residents. With the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the responsible decision to cancel Anthem Days, which was scheduled to take place March 28-29. We hope that this will help to flatten the curve and prevent the spread of the virus to our community.
We will continue to communicate with you if additional measures must be taken regarding our other programs, events, classes, or access to facilities. At this time, the Civic Building (which houses both ACC and HOA offices) and the Community Center remain open with business as usual. However, we have been proactively enhancing our already-robust cleaning and sanitation protocols at these buildings, and are following the guidelines of state and federal public health officials.
Enhanced sanitation protocol includes:
- Staff wipes down all surfaces in our facilities hourly, including chairs, door handles, handrails, faucets, light switches and countertops.
- Games, tabletops, computer keyboards, remote controls, toys, etc. also are being aggressively and routinely sanitized.
- Fitness center equipment, weights and mats are wiped down several times daily; machines are wiped down at least hourly.
- Hand sanitizer stations are available throughout the buildings (Community Center and Civic Building).
Please refer to the CDC’s website regarding news related to COVID-19, including recommended steps to keep yourself and those around you healthy.
At this time, we plan to host Music in May as scheduled. Please visit our website for more information about this concert series.
Thank you for your understanding and support of this decision. Special events such as Anthem Days are a staple; and while no one wants to see them canceled, our community’s health and safety are our top priorities.
Editor’s Note: The associated carnival, which typically starts the Thursday prior, is also canceled, ACC tells In&Out Publications. The NoPhoNews Coronavirus Page has other news and information on the virus and local reaction.
