As of last week, according to ADHS, over 40% of Arizona’s population has received at least one dose of the vaccine.
As you may have heard, the CDC has released a new set of mask guidelines for vaccinated people. If you are an Arizonan that is fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the CDC’s new guidelines suggest that you can take your mask off and return to normal activities both indoors and outdoors.
Here are the most common COVID-19 Q’s we are getting in our office and short answers:
- Can association still require vaccinated residents to wear masks on common areas? Yes. However, we are suggesting to our clients that associations start to relax restrictions on vaccinated residents wearing masks on common areas. Each board will need to look at this issue and determine what is best for your residents. We are suggesting that the Board review CDC guidelines to help guide you through the process. We are here to answer questions and help too so feel free to reach out to us to discuss this any time.
- Can Associations require proof of vaccination from their residents? No.
- Can Associations prohibit unvaccinated residents to use common areas? No. But, the Association can state that any resident who is not vaccinated to wear a mask on common areas. We recognize that this will be difficult to enforce since we can’t even ask for proof of vaccination.
