Red Ledges COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

June 26, 2020

Dear Red Ledges Members,

It has now been over 3 months since the effects of COVID-19 came to Utah and began to impact us here at Red Ledges.  With the tremendous support of our Members, we have made the most of a difficult time.  A dry start to the spring and summer has also allowed many of you to get outside, play golf, tennis, pickleball, ride horses, go for walks, ride bikes and keep moving about the community.  Since re-opening Juniper Grill, in-Club dining has been well supported. Our virtual Fitness Classes have continued to thrive and with the great weather, our outdoor classes have been well attended.  Hiking and biking have been so popular that we now have multiple guided experiences each week.  We were also able to open both pools, Village dining and the Fitness Center to the members and their house guests.  Needless to say, life at Red Ledges is vibrant!

With the guidance of the State of Utah and the Wasatch County Health Department, the Club has worked hard to provide clean and safe spaces for you and your families to enjoy.  As part of this, we have implemented frequent cleaning measures and sound safety practices to provide our members, guests and staff with safe spaces to play and work.

Here is what we have done to ensure your safety while using the Club.

  • Purchased and installed Aerocide air purifiers for the Juniper Grill and Fitness Center
  • Purchased a Protexus electrostatic sanitizer sprayer for the Fitness Center
  • The sanitizing of all fitness equipment each night
  • Installed multiple Hand Sanitizing Stations around all Club Facilities
  • Have dedicated staff cleaning/sanitizing all restrooms, door handles and touch points daily from 9:00 AM – 9:00 PM
  • Providing social distancing at pools between parties
  • Sanitizing all pool chairs and seating between use
  • Providing chair covers at Clubhouse Pool
  • All F&B Staff wearing masks
  • All Back of House F&B Staff wearing gloves
  • All F&B Staff have a daily temperature check before work and temperature is logged
  • Reduced capacity and tables arranged to provide proper social distancing at Juniper Grill
  • Provide coffee and cookies at Clubhouse upon request rather than self-service
  • Using medical grade sanitizers
  • Sanitizing all golf carts
  • Providing single rider carts for golf
  • Removed rakes from course to avoid shared use
  • Any staff not feeling well, asked to stay home
  • Any staff with COVID symptoms asked to stay home and get a COVID test
  • Sanitizing or disposing of items shared by people (pens, menus, food pagers)

 

It is important to understand that while we are managing risk, there is no belief that we can be at zero risk.  Members are asked to practice the following:

  • Stay home if you do not feel well, have a fever and/or present COVID-19 symptoms
  • Wear a Mask when out in public! COVID-19 is most easily passed in closed/indoor spaces
  • Wash Hands Frequently!
  • Use Hand Sanitizers – Carry Hand Sanitizer and/or Wipes with you
  • Avoid Touching your Face
  • Do Not Shake Hands, Fist Bump or Hug
  • Keep Social Distance – 6 feet or more
  • Take personal responsibility for your own actions. The guidelines cannot account for every nuanced situation.

As we have moved to the moderate risk phase this does not mean business as usual. Under a moderate risk situation, there are more opportunities for recreation, but we still need to work together and all do our own part to make sure we continue trending in a good direction in the fight against COVID-19.

Warmest Regards and Be Safe

Dear Red Ledges Members,

It has now been over 6 weeks since the effects of COVID-19 came to Utah and began to impact us here at Red Ledges.  With the tremendous support of our Members, we have made the most of a difficult time.  Here in Utah, we have really been quite lucky compared to some of the harder hit parts of the country.  A warm and dry April has also allowed many of you to get outside, play some golf, tennis, pickleball, go for walks, jog and keep moving about the community.  The support for our take-out dining from Juniper Grill has been incredible to say the least.  Out virtual programming has been supported in an awesome way too.  The Fitness Classes, Kids Activities and Friday Night at Red Ledges (FNRL) entertainment have all helped keep us all connected and having fun.

With the guidance the State of Utah (see guidance here) and the Wasatch County Health Department, the Club is planning to open more amenities and programs for members to enjoy.

Please know that the Club will be implementing frequent cleaning measures and sound safety practices to provide our members, guests and staff with safe spaces to play and work.  It is important to understand that while we are managing risk, there is no belief that we can be at zero risk.  Members are asked to practice the following:

  • Stay home if you do not feel well, have a fever and/or present COVID-19 symptoms
  • Wash Hands Frequently!
  • Use Hand Sanitizers – Carry Hand Sanitizer and/or Wipes with you
  • Avoid Touching your Face
  • Do Not Shake Hands, Fist Bump or Hug
  • Keep Social Distance – 6 feet or more
  • Take personal responsibility for your own actions. The guidelines cannot account for every nuanced situation.

As we move from high risk to moderate risk is it does not mean business as usual. Under a moderate risk situation, there are more opportunities for recreation, but we still need to work together and all do our own part to make sure we continue trending in a good direction in the fight against COVID-19.

Dear Red Ledges Members,

It’s hard to believe what has transpired over the past few weeks in our country and around the globe.  I don’t think any of us could have ever imagined something like this could take place, yet oddly, it has united us all.  No matter where you live, this virus has affected every one of us and we are all doing our best to remain healthy, happy and productive in our lives. We here at the Club are happy to be able to offer some bright moments to our members with a variety of fun, virtual connections throughout this time of social distancing.

Despite the obvious challenges, the Red Ledges community has continued to shine brightly in the past few weeks.  We often hear what makes Red Ledges special is the sense of community our members feel on a daily basis.  Over the past weeks we have had tremendous support from many of you and our community remains vibrant.  Our virtual Friday Night at Red Ledges events have included great food from Juniper Grill enjoyed by almost 200 members and more great meals to look forward to including pizza night and Easter Dinner.   In addition, we’ve been having a blast seeing everyone on Zoom with Bingo Night, our first Virtual Talent Show and more fun on the horizon including a magic show and trivia night!   With spring peeking into March and early April this year, we have never seen the Golf Park busier than the past two weeks. Watching our members playing the golf park and seeing countless members using the course to walk, jog or simply play with their dogs, has been awesome!

It has also been quite impressive to see the sheer number of members participating in our virtual fitness classes.  Our instructors have continued to provide great workouts for all levels of fitness from the comfort of your home.  We have had 20-30 people in each class each day, which is more than we see when classes meet normally in person!  Tennis and Pickle Ball also continue to provide great outdoor fun as members seek to remain active and get out of the house and our kid’s virtual classes on Mondays have been a hit as well.

It seems that through the combination of safe, outdoor spaces, careful event planning and virtual programming, Red Ledges members are truly making the most of life here, even in the most challenging of times!  I would like to thank all of you for your support and hope to see each of you very soon.

Be safe,

JJ

I am writing you with the latest news in regard to Red Ledges Club and Community Association operations.

To begin, I would like to thank all of you for your patience, understanding and encouragement in this difficult time!  We are all one community inside and outside the gates of Red Ledges and our role in the broader community should be to lead by example.

As the spread of the virus takes place, so will the recovery, and in time we will be able to resume our lives in a more normal fashion. In the meantime, it is most important to practice safe social distancing and avoid gathering in groups.

Our team at Red Ledges is taking steps today and for the future to ensure the health and safety of our members, guests and staff.  In a socially responsible manner, as of 5:00 pm today, the Club will be closing all facilities, services, activities and events with the exception of the following:

  • Take-Out service from Juniper Grill will be available, beginning, Thursday, March 19.  Daily from 12:00 pm – 7:00 pm.  Menu to be provided soon.
  • The Administration and Member Services Team will be here to answer questions and continue to prepare the Club for when we re-open.  Hours will be 9:00 am – 7:00 pm daily.
  • Golf Operations – Practice Area remains open.  Golf Course opening dates to follow.
  • Outdoor Tennis Courts remain open.  Call Member Services to reserve a court at 435-657-4080.

Dear Red Ledges Members,

We want to assure you that Red Ledges is taking proactive actions to minimize the risk of exposure to coronavirus (COVID-19). We are taking preemptive measures to ensure our facilities are as sanitary as possible. We have increased the frequency and rigor of cleaning and disinfection program for all frequently touched surfaces, washrooms, entrances/exits, handrails, and other areas club-wide, with a special emphasis in our food and beverage areas, fitness areas, locker rooms, and other high-traffic areas. Along with our permanent hand sanitizer dispensers, we have placed additional hand sanitizers around the Club to help protect members and employees.

We are closely monitoring announcements from the CDC and Wasatch County Health Department. If any additional directives are given by federal, state, or local authorities, we will take appropriate measures to continue protecting your health. Along with the CDC, we encourage all members and employees to practice good hygiene and be vigilant and prepared. Perhaps most importantly, please stay home if you become sick. Limit your contact with others and seek medical treatment if your symptoms persist or become more serious.

Employees are being reminded to follow safe hygiene practices including the importance of washing their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, covering the nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing, and avoiding touching the face. We encourage members to follow similar hygiene practices.  Employees are prohibited from coming to the Club while sick with any infectious illness, and we are asking the same of members. We are monitoring and enforcing all travel restrictions mandated by the applicable federal, state, and local health authorities and medical professionals.

So far we have been fortunate that Utah is one of the least impacted areas of the country, with only a handful of confirmed cases of coronavirus. However, many of our members and their guests travel frequently, and the possibility of coming in contact with the virus is increased due to travel.

Please note, we have implemented certain visitor protocols to ensure the safety of our members, guests and employees.  If you intend to bring guests to the Club, please email your guest(s) contact information to service@redledgesclub.com prior to arriving at the Club.  If your guests have any questions regarding the information requested, please let me know. 

If you would like additional information, updates and/or preventive tips on the Coronavirus, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website at www.cdc.gov.

We remain committed to maintaining a safe environment for you to visit with family and friends, and we wish you only the best as we work to overcome this crisis.

Best Wishes,

JJ

John Johnson
