To: SCA club presidents and club members
From: Community Lifestyle Committee
Subject: Nevada Mask Mandate
We all have the responsibility to care for and protect one another.
In parallel with guidance by SCA Management, the CLC needs to reinforce the critical nature of the mask mandate to protect others as well as yourself.
Whether you agree with the mask mandate or not, all Association residents, when indoors in any Association facility, including all indoor club functions, must wear a mask covering the mouth and nose as mandated by the State of Nevada. The only exception to a mask covering the mouth and nose is a full-face shield by those who have an underlying medical condition exempting them from using a mask. This exception works on the honor system. SCA staff members or clubs are not allowed to ask for personal medical information such as proof of an underlying condition, vaccination records or covid test data.
The Association is being regularly (as often as weekly) inspected by the City of Henderson for compliance. A lack of compliance could lead to the shutdown of club functions and/or the closure all facilities impacting all residents that use Association facilities.
A few residents and club members are violating the requirement of wearing a mask and are not keeping both nose and mouth covered. In some instances, they are being belligerent to fellow residents or monitors who are simply trying to remind them of the need for compliance for each other’s safety. This is too serious a public health issue to tolerate blatant violations and bad behavior.
All clubs must require and enforce proper use of masks and face shields during indoor club functions. According to the CCG&Rs 7.3, the CLC may institute grievance proceedings against a club for violation of Association policies or local law which can result in a suspension of the club’s activities.
If a club member refuses to comply and/or uses abusive behavior toward club officers or other members, the club can initiate a grievance which can result in the member’s suspension or expulsion. The club may choose to inform a monitor and the member can be reported to the Covenants Committee. Residents are facing suspension of privileges for lack of compliance.
The CLC is asking club presidents to send a copy of this email to all club members with the hope of avoiding any disciplinary actions. Instead, let’s work to keep each other SAFE and HEALTHY and ACTIVE!
