TUESDAY, SEPT. 14, 2021
at 7:30 PM

for our in-person, outdoor, fully-masked, socially-distanced

We'll discuss

  • Building issues (new mirrors for garage users, the MCI, and more)
  • Staying safe
and more. 

If you haven't yet paid your dues or contributed any legal funds for 2021, Tuesday, Sept. 14th will be a good time to do it.

Getting complacent about COVID?

The unvaccinated are a big highway of transmission. The vaccinated are a little side street.”

DR. WILLIAM SCHAFFNER, a professor of infectious disease at Vanderbilt, about the Delta variant.

August 26, 2021, NY Times


Many tenants have ditched their masks or are only covering their mouths or (even worse) their necks.  If you breathe through your nose, please cover it as well as your mouth. (Surgeons are often masked for many hours and don't suffer from a lack of oxygen.)

You don't know whether the other person on the elevator with you or in the corridor has been getting chemotherapy, or has a child who's immunocompromised, or lives with an elderly parent with breathing difficulties.  And we don't know whether we currently have COVID without symptoms - and can spread it even if we're vaccinated.  (Yesterday's test is already outdated.) 

So PLEASE wear your mask every time you step out of your apartment into the corridors and laundry rooms - and please get vaccinated.  Almost all of the hospitalized people with COVID are there because they were not vaccinated.

Wear your mask in public for 3 reasons

Those reasons and protecting yourself and the health of others are also reasons to get vaccinated. It's free and can save lives.
