RE: A MESSAGE FROM MERIDIAN REGARDING COVID-19 AND YOUR HOUSING
Thank you for being a resident with Meridian Group. As we have seen this week, the Novel Coronavirus (Covid-19) has had a growing impact on our cities, state, county, and country. We want to continue to look out for your safety as well as our community as a whole. In light of this, we feel it is prudent to take precautions against spreading infection of any kind.
If you do not have to physically come into our office, then it is best to stay home. Maintenance work orders and rent payments can be made through your online portal. Information on how to sign up and utilize your online portal can be found on the following page. You can also call or email us to report any maintenance issues. Please be patient as the repairs are being completed. We are prioritizing emergency maintenance requests at this time. However, it is important to continue reporting all maintenance issues to our office. If there are scheduled repairs at your unit, please let us know if you are feeling sick so we can better protect ourselves and others. All currently scheduled annual inspections are being postponed until further notice as a precaution. We will also increase regular cleaning of common areas, such as laundry rooms.
Additionally, here are some helpful links from the CDC website about protecting yourself and your family from illnesses, such as COVID-19:
- What you need to know about the Coronaries
- Stop the Spread of Germs
- Prevention if you are sick
- CDC Travel Advisories
We wish everyone good health and safety. Please protect yourselves and others from the spread of infection by following CDC health recommendations. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at (805) 692-2500 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
