POOL CLOSURE NOTICE – 07.02.20
Due to the ongoing rise in Covid 19 cases in Harris County, the Board of Directors have been diligently reviewing relevant factors through daily County and State updates to determine whether or not we can open the pool facilities and provide all of the precautions necessary to ensure resident protection while entering community facilities. Unfortunately, the Board has had to make the tough decision to not open the pool until such time as a down turn begins to show in surrounding areas and the County as a whole.
 
We certainly understand that this may not be the update many residents want to hear at this point but we are sure that all will understand and agree that the health and safety of our community is the most important issue at this time. We appreciate your continued patience and we will continue to monitor the situation daily and weekly to provide further updates on the remainder of the pool season.

Prestonwood Forest - COVID 19 Facilities Update
It's summertime and we know everyone is itching to get outside, go to the pools and parks and just feel normal again! And we understand that with the school year ending, the kids are eager to utilize the community swimming pools so we wanted to send an update on our current situation....
 
Our highest priority is getting our facilities opened as quickly and safely as possible and we know everyone has seen the Federal and Local updates advising that pools can now be opened. However, we want to reiterate that there are still many safety restrictions in place that are also governed by the Harris County Health Department and the Texas Department of Health and Safety for opening private swimming pools that are not always detailed in media reports. And because of these guidelines and restrictions, as well as the delayed ability to train and staff lifeguards, we will be unable to open the pool until possibly late June or early July, if at all. Following are just a few of the issues we face preventing immediate facilities opening:
 
  • Capacity limitations of 25% and social gathering restrictions that would require very limited use of the pools and additional staffing in order to maintain a safe environment.
  • “High touch area” disinfecting and sanitizing guidelines requiring cleaning door handles, pool furniture, bathrooms, etc. after every use.
  • Splash pads, slides, water features, etc. are to remain closed by current State and local orders.
  • Pool management companies are struggling to fully train and staff facilities due to previous and current Stay Home-Work Safe orders and estimate several more weeks in order to service all of the new requirements.
  • Pools of a certain size and class are required to have bathrooms and showers available, which then requires additional sanitizing and multiple daily disinfecting. **Bathrooms attached to clubhouses/rec centers cannot be opened due to social gathering and rental restrictions.**
 
These and many more restrictions and guidelines create more of a burden from both a safety and financial aspect and we would rather our lifeguards monitor the swimmers in the pool instead of becoming gate attendants and cleaning crews. However, we are in the process of installing the required safety signage and have ordered touch less hand sanitizing stations for the pools, in addition to meeting as many of the safety guidelines as we are able to at this time and we are hopeful that capacity/social gathering limits will be increased over the next week or two, allowing us to be one step closer to opening the facilities for resident use. If we can open the facilities sooner, we will. But unfortunately they will not be opened for Memorial Day weekend or the week following.
 
The safety and well being of the residents is our main priority during this unprecedented event, therefore we must ask for your continued patience as we evaluate all options and abilities available to us when making decisions in the best interest of the community as a whole. Additional updates will be provided as soon as they are available.
 
Thank you,

TEXAS SENIOR MEDICAL PATROL – COVID 19 RELATED SCAM PREVENTION
COVID-19 Fraud

Scams related to the coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, are rapidly increasing as the public health emergency develops. Scammers are targeting older adults and those with serious long-term health conditions who appear to have a higher risk for serious illness from COVID-19.

Fraudsters are attempting to bill Medicare for sham tests or treatments related to the coronavirus and are targeting individuals to illegally obtain money or Medicare numbers.

What Can You Do to Stop COVID-19 Fraud?

  • Do not give out your Medicare number to anyone other than your doctor, healthcare provider, or other trusted representative.
  • Protect your Medicare number and treat your Medicare card like a credit card.
  • Never provide your Medicare number to anyone who contacts you through unsolicited calls, texts, or emails.
  • Be cautious of anyone who comes to your door offering free coronavirus testing, treatment, or supplies.
  • Don’t click on links from sources you don’t know, which could put your computer or device at risk. Make sure the anti-malware and anti-virus software on your computer are up to date.
  • Be cautious when purchasing medical supplies from unverified sources, including online advertisements and email/phone solicitations.
  • Ignore online offers for vaccinations. If you see ads touting prevention products or cures for COVID-19, they are most likely a scam.
  • Do your homework before making a donation to a charity or crowdfunding site due to a public health emergency. Be particularly wary of any charities requesting donations by cash, by gift card, or wire transfer.
  • Be alert to “investment opportunities.” The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is warning people about online promotions, including on social media, claiming that the products or services of publicly traded companies can prevent, detect, or cure COVID-19 and that the stock of these companies will dramatically increase in value as a result.

What Does Medicare Cover in Relation to COVID-19?

  • Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers COVID-19 tests when ordered by your doctor or health care provider on or after February 4, 2020.
  • Medicare covers all medically necessary hospitalizations, including extra days in the hospital for patients who had to stay longer under COVID-19 quarantine.
  • There is no vaccine for COVID-19 at this time; however, if one becomes available, Medicare will cover it.
  • Medicare also recently expanded coverage of telehealth services to enable beneficiaries to access a wider range of services from their providers without having to travel to a facility.
    • This includes access to doctors, nurse practitioners, clinical psychologists, and licensed clinical social workers.
    • During this emergency, there are also more options for the ways your providers can talk with you under this provision.
  • For Medicare coverage questions, contact your local State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) at SHIPTAcenter.org or 1-877-839-2675.

2020 Annual Association Assessment
Click for more info on 2020 assessmentsPursuant to the Association’s governing documents, property owners are hereby notified that the annual assessment for 2020 will increase, by $12, to $660.00 per lot. The Board of Directors would like to again offer each property owner the opportunity to divide their annual assessment into four (4) incremental payments of $165.00 to assist those who might have a hardship in paying the fee in one lump sum. Please note that the entire 2020 assessment must be paid in full and received by the due date, March 31, 2020, to avoid late or legal fees.

Property owners interested in making incremental payments will find four (4) coupons enclosed in their mailed assessment notification, for use in mailing these payments to the processing center. The suggested due dates for incremental payments are as follows: December 1, 2019, January 1, 2020, February 1, 2020 and March 1, 2020. Property owners may certainly opt to pay their entire 2020 assessment in a single payment by the due date (March 31, 2020) and decline the advantage of the incremental payment option.

Recreation Access Cards
Online Recreation Access Card Request Form
Please remember that Recreation Access Cards are issued only one-time to each residence and that new cards are not re-issued each year. Previously issued cards are remotely enabled/disabled each year based on timely payment of the annual assessment dues.
 
Each lot (physical address within the community) is issued one (1) ‘Recreation Access Card’ , which will be assigned through the duration of residency in the community and will work year-round – pursuant to each facility’s posted hours of operation and usage policy.
 
Please be sure to reference the ‘Recreation Access Card’ Policy and the Pool, Tennis and Clubhouse Information pages for important facility access details.
The ‘Recreation Access Card’ is required at all times to enter and use the Pool/Tennis/Clubhouse Facilities. Residences that have not previously requested cards, may request their household’s card through the convenient Online Request Form.
 
Lost or stolen cards will be reissued for a fee of $10.00 payable to PFMA.
 
Beginning in 2016, ‘Recreation Access Card’ and proximity card readers at the pools, tennis courts and clubhouse combine the functionality of (and have replaced) the old pool tag and facility key access methods.
 
Important: Each access card coding is assigned to a specific Prestonwood Forest house address and all entry/exit at each facility is digitally recorded. Therefore, it is very important NOT to let anyone other than your household use your Recreation Access Card.
 
If you have any questions, please contact a High Sierra representative, through this website’s Contact Us feature.
