Dear Member, 

The Medical Center has seen a small uptick in testing requests this week.  This is to be expected as season grows near and people begin to flow back into Ocean Reef.  The Medical Center’s tracking grid has been updated to reflect 6 additional negative results and 1 positive.  Patient has been provided quarantine protocols to include self-reporting and notification to those who may have been in recent contact. The majority of tests stem from the onset of cold-like symptoms.  This too is to be expected as we approach annual Flu season.  The link below is a reminder of the importance of the Flu vaccination.

WELCOME BACK!
Your Medical Center’s Best Practices and Recommendations

Good Day Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are looking forward to welcoming you, family and friends back to Ocean Reef. In anticipation of your return to Ocean Reef, The Medical Center would like to take this opportunity to share lessons learned, best practices and recommendations. Our goal is to provide information you find useful in our collective efforts to maintain wellness and keep our community safe. In addition, we have also included a companion document illustrating best practices.

WEAR A MASK:
• Wear masks with two or more layers to stop the spread of COVID-19
• Wear the mask over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin
• Masks should be worn by people two years and older
• Masks should NOT be worn by children younger than two, people who have trouble breathing, or people who cannot remove the mask without assistance
• Do NOT wear masks intended for healthcare workers, for example, N95 respirators
• CDC does not recommend the use of gaiters or face shields. Evaluation of these face covers is on-going but effectiveness is unknown at this time.

STAY AT HOME IF YOU ARE NOT FEELING WELL
:
• Stay at home and contact your Medical Center
• Take care of yourself, get rest, stay hydrated
• Stay in touch with your Provider
• Avoid public venues
• Separate yourself from others as much as possible
• Maintain sound sanitation hygiene

TESTING
:
• In anticipation of your return, The Medical Center encourages you to get a COVID test before traveling back into Ocean Reef. Doing so establishes a reference point and may aide in the narrowing of future contact tracing. In addition, Antibody testing prior to arrival may provide information regarding prior exposure.
• The CDC testing guidelines are currently as follows:
  o People who have symptoms of COVID-19
  o People who have had close contact (within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes) with someone with confirmed COVID-19
  o People who have been asked or referred to get testing by their healthcare provider or State/Local health department. Not everyone needs to be tested. If you do get tested, you should self-quarantine/isolate at home pending test results and follow the advice of your health care provider or a public health professional.
• Once on Ocean Reef, contact your Medical Center for testing options and guidance.
• We encourage everyone to get their Flu shot this year

Latest Update From Your Club

Dear Fellow Member,

As you prepare to return to your Club, we would like to provide you with some important information highlighting differences you will see from our “normal” operations.

At the conclusion of this letter, you will also find a link to our digital booklet detailing the Club’s various amenities and how they will operate this season in light of the continuing COVID pandemic.

Your Board and Management Team have designed each dining venue and recreational amenity to operate in accordance with the standards promulgated by the CDC. Simply said, we will do our utmost to provide an environment where our Members feel comfortable using whichever Club amenity they choose to visit. The health and welfare of our Members, their guests and our Associates remains both your and our highest priority. The Club has designed its amenity protocols with safety in mind. We are providing you with these operating protocols for each individual Club amenity in advance of most of you returning to The Reef, so that you can plan and anticipate how you will enjoy our amazing Club this season. We hope you will find this information helpful as you decide what is best for your personal situation and risk tolerance.

The amenity that impacts all of us most is our Food and Beverage dining venues. Currently, we continue to limit indoor eating venues to the 50% capacity level, (Florida has recently authorized 100% seating capacity) and have added new indoor and outdoor eating venues to increase the overall availability of dining seats. Not only will you find these venues fun with new menu options, we’ve managed to increase the total capacity at several individual venues while adhering to self-imposed 50% capacity level.

Included in the link below you will also find a brief overview of our major Capital Projects. Please note that the Associate Parking Garage is proceeding on budget and will be completed on time for use in December. The Garage will house 400 Associate vehicles, freeing up much needed space throughout the Club for Member and Guest parking.

Also note, that the Lobby, Ocean Room and Reef Lounge renovations are proceeding albeit slightly behind schedule. Our contractor, Woolems has provided a schedule which has the Ocean Room restaurant, equipped with a completely new kitchen, ready for Member-use in mid-December with the Reef Lounge bar slated for completion by mid-January. The Club will continue to monitor this on a daily and weekly basis and provide scheduling updates in the next thirty days. Additionally, due to the unforeseen structural repairs, the budget has increased however, as our Club is in a strong financial position we continue our promise that there will be no need for special assessments of financing to pay for these projects.

We look forward to our Town Hall meeting on Friday, November 20th, 2020, where we will cover the items included here in more detail, as well as additional information for the upcoming Winter season. For those comfortable attending in person, 80 seats will be available in Carysfort Hall, positioned 6’ apart and masks will be required. As is standard, the meeting will also be streamed live online, as well as posted to the website, for viewing at any time for those who would like to watch from home.

Our goal is to provide our, “Unique Way of Life” while at the same time meeting CDC recommended safety practices for all of our Members, your families, guests and Associates at all of our facilities.

Lastly, we are thankful for many things as Members of the finest Club in the United States. Specifically, the Club would like to thank the Medical Center’s Keith Young (CEO) and Chris Grant (COO), as well as Ken Karl and Mike Berman, (past and present Medical Center Board Chairmen), along with all the doctors and staff for their input and leadership in an effort to keep us healthy during these challenging times. We are truly blessed to have these professionals dedicated to the well-being of our Membership.

In closing, we hope you will take time to review the link below as we all prepare to enjoy our Club together this season. We thank you in advance for your support and patience while we maneuver through this very different situation.

Dear Member, 

In addition to this week’s Negative results, The Medical Center has processed two POSITIVE test results this week.  The positive results originate from the same household.  Patients have been provided quarantine protocols and encouraged to self-disclose, notifying anyone they have been in contact with.  These test results serve as a fresh reminder that vigilance is our best defense to include adherence to the wearing of a mask, sound sanitation techniques, and active implementation of social distancing whenever applicable.

Dear Fellow Members,
 
Ocean Reef Club has been fortunate to have experienced a minimal number of positive COVID-19 cases since the onset of the pandemic, and those who tested positive have all fully recovered.
 
Since March, the Club has worked closely with the Medical Center, followed CDC, State and local guidelines, best practices and made the safety of Members and Associates the top priority. 
 
This past Friday, September 25, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis lifted all restrictions on businesses statewide, which most significantly means bars and restaurants can now operate at 100% full capacity. Local governments are permitted to keep additional limits in place. To read the full Executive Order, click here https://www.monroecounty-fl.gov/1169/COVID-19

In the best interest of safety for our overall community, your Board and Club Management has decided to maintain our current conservative operating model. This includes maintaining 50% capacity at Restaurants and Bars, a reduced number of lounge chairs at Buccaneer Island, limited machines available at the Fitness Center, and other safety restrictions. Masks will continue to be required when indoors at all Club outlets, shops and offices.
 
As we monitor the situation in Monroe County and South Florida, we will make appropriate modifications to our current protocols so long as they are in the best interest of Ocean Reef Club Members and Associates. Within the next several weeks, we will be providing an overview of the Club’s Operational and Safety Plan related to COVID for the upcoming season. At that time we will advise you of which, if any, protocols will be modified so that we may over time return to “our unique way of life,” that we all have grown accustomed to enjoying.  As we have done since the beginning of the pandemic, we will make the health and well-being of this community our first priority. 
 
On Behalf of Your Board of Directors and Management Team,

Alex Tonarelli
