Dear Boardie

    Q. PB is filled with people not wearing masks and partying like it’s 1999. So is the Covid scare         over?

    A. No! PB had a 120% spike in virus cases – the highest in the county. Time to go back in the            box!

    Q. What should I do?

    A. Wear your mask, wash your hands, practice safe distancing, ride the elevator alone, stay                 home if  you can and be careful all over again! It ain‘t over till it’s over!


Watch for symptoms

People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness. Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus. People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:

Fever or chills


Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing


Muscle or body aches


New loss of taste or smell

Sore throat

Congestion or runny nose

Nausea or vomiting


 When to Seek Emergency Medical Attention

Look for emergency warning signs* for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:

Trouble breathing

Persistent pain or pressure in the chest

New confusion

Inability to wake or stay awake

Bluish lips or face

*This list is not all possible symptoms. Please call your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning to you.

Call 911 or call ahead to your local emergency facility: Notify the operator that you are seeking care for someone who has or may have COVID-19.

Find a testing site in CA

A/O 7.12.20: Because of the demand, it now averages 8 days for test results. Consider isolating yourself till the results come back – otherwise what’s the point?

Dear Boardie,

    Q.  I thought the roof remodel would be started by now. What happened?

    A.  So much planning and so many factors have come together and there’s now a hold up on the        very first part of the roof job – the removal of the old roof. Stay tuned…


Dear Boardie,

    Q. What happened to the usual June Annual Party and Board Elections?

    A. Covid happened.

    Q. So what’s the plan?

    A. July 12, a notice came from PHOAC announcing the coming Board elections. A third-party         called  Ballot Box will be sending you a ballot. Elections will take place on Zoom, not in-                person.

    Q. Why should I vote?

    A.  The Board decides where your monthly $450 is going, so it’s an important choice.  We                    need at least 40 people to vote to qualify as a legit election.

 BONUS: As an incentive to vote we will raffle off a free month’s HOA fee to one voter. Odds are very good since there are only 118 possible voters. What have you got to lose?
