Posted on Oct 21st, 2020
GYM CLOSURE
 
Dear Four Seasons Residents,

As of October 20, 2020, the State has reassigned Riverside County from the red tier to the purple tier and affected businesses must change operations by Friday, October 23.

The state’s decision to move Riverside County back to the purple tier means we MUST close both Gym's at The Lodge. The Lodge Reopening Committee and the Executive Ad-Hoc Committee also reviewed the new purple tier assignment and it was recommended to close both Gym's immediately until further notice.

As of Thursday, October 21st, both Gym's are CLOSED until further notice.

ADDITIONAL USAGE OPTIONS!
 
You asked, we listened. We're delivering to you an additional option to extend court usage.

The Tennis, Pickleball and Badminton courts still require a reservation. Residents (or members of the same household) are limited to a single reservation per day with an option to extend if there are no other reservations after. Please check with the front desk at the end of your reservation to make sure there are no upcoming reservations. 

The Pool and Spa still require a reservation and is limited to one hour per household per day. If at the end of your reserved time there is an open area in the pool, you may continue to use the pool if there are no other reservations after. Please check with the front desk at the end of your reservation to make sure there are no upcoming reservations. 

Reminder:
Please keep in mind reservations cannot be made more than 24 hours in advance. This includes making a reservation via email, phone or online.

The number of persons permitted in each of the fitness areas at a time is limited to one (1) resident or a household, except that a resident or a household may be accompanied by a certified personal trainer. Only those residents that are actually exercising may be inside the fitness areas.
Gym A and Gym B will be by RESERVATION ONLY. Reservations can only be made (1) day in advance. 
All gym users are required to be screened by the Staff at the Front Desk before entering Gym A or Gym B.  Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your reservation time. Please note, if you cannot attest to the screening questions, you may not enter the facilities.

Now Accepting 2020-2021 Club Applications
Posted on Sep 2nd, 2020
During these unprecedented times, we want to try to maintain a sense of normalcy at Four Seasons. With Club Renewals, our goal is to be prepared when Riverside County is off the County Monitoring List and the State Health Officer modifies the July 13, 2020 order, to authorize the re-opening of indoor operations. The Board will also consider the re-opening of indoor operations of The Lodge once the orders have been lifted and Riverside County is off of the monitoring list. The Board takes into consideration the safety of our residents, with being a 55+ community – this is the #1 concern and impacts their decisions.
 
Club Renewals
 
If you would like to continue having your club or would like to start a new club here at Four Seasons, renewal and new club packets are now available.
 
Click here for a renewal packet.
Click here for a new club packet.
 
Once the packet is complete return it to Amber Effinger, Activities Director, no later than October 13th, 2020 at 5:00 pm. All clubs must be approved by the Board of Directors prior to commencing operation and are not officially sanctioned without such Board approval. In order for your club to be reviewed/approved the following documents will be required:
  1. Club Reservation Application (Incomplete applications will not be considered for approval) 
  1. Club Roster with all pertinent membership information
Once approved, an additional email will be sent out requesting that a Social-Recreation Club Policy #23 Acknowledgement Form be signed and returned. Your Club Reservation approval is not final until the acknowledgement form is returned to The Lodge Front Desk.
 
We look forward to another great year of over 50+ clubs!

Lodge Update 8.24.20
Posted on Aug 24th, 2020
Our priority is to keep the safety and health of everyone in mind. The Board and Management continue to communicate with you through the 4seasonsmurrieta.com website, Weekly Windup, and email blasts. Please share this information with your neighbors. Anyone who is not currently receiving emails from us can contact The Lodge by phone at 951-461-0072 or by email at 4seasonsfrontdesk@gmail.com to get their email added to our distribution list.  
 
Here are some Important Lodge reminders:

Masks: All residents MUST wear face coverings at all times while inside The Lodge building. This is part of the Temporary Lodge Entrance and Exit Rules. It is also a MUST by the California Department of Public Health. Click here to read the guidance for face coverings. If you forget your mask at home, we have some available at The Lodge (limited supply). It is considered a violation and against the rules to not wear a mask when entering and exiting through The Lodge, and fobs may be deactivated for suspension of privileges with proper prior notice. 

Reservations: The Lodge Reservation system has been part of The Lodge Reopening since June 3, 2020. The Reservation system has been put in place to make sure we are in compliance with local & state gathering guidelines. The Board takes into consideration the safety of our residents, with being a 55+ community – this is the #1 concern and impacts their decisions. As of today, gatherings of individuals should be limited to no more than 10 people.  The Board will consider removing the requirements for reservations once the orders have been lifted by State and County Officials.  

Golf Range: Fridays Weekly Wind-up announced the reopening of the driving range. Unfortunately, the net is still too taut and can be dangerous for residents to use.  For the safety of Four Seasons Residents the driving range is currently closed until further notice.
 
Thank you for your support and cooperation at this unusual time.

COVID-19 UPDATE 7.8.20
Posted on Jul 8th, 2020
Dear Four Seasons Community,

With the health and safety of all our residents and staff in mind, we are continuing to provide weekly updates as information becomes available. 

We request residents who use The Lodge facilities and test positive, to please notify the General Manager in writing as soon as possible. Names or personal information are not disclosed unless authorized directly by the individual. Additionally, it would be our hope that those who test positive would self-quarantine, and not come to The Lodge. We feel it is critical to our 55+ high-risk community to inform residents who may use the Four Season's amenities.  Therefore, if you use The Lodge facilities and have tested positive, we urge you to please notify the General Manager in writing, KC Steines, at ksteines@equitymgt.com.

Here is the latest information we know:
June 26, we were notified directly by a resident informing us they had tested positive for COVID-19 and that the resident had been to The Lodge in the afternoons of June 5, June 8, and June 9. The resident had been in self-quarantine. The spouse of the individual tested positive shortly after, and has not been to The Lodge.
July 1, one additional resident informed us they have tested positive. They had last been to The Lodge on June 6. We are not aware if their spouse has tested positive or not, and they were last at The Lodge on June 13.
We were informed by two other residents they tested positive, however, they have not been to The Lodge since we have reopened.
Please keep in mind, there may be additional cases in our community that have not notified us in writing to confirm.

We must all do our part!
Wear face mask in public – it is now required in Riverside County
Social distance – 6 feet or more
Wash your hands frequently  or use hand sanitizer
Follow County and State guidelines – stay informed
Stay Home

Residents are strongly encouraged to not participate in social events, such as attending events anywhere other than within your own household, as a responsibility to everyone in the community. 

As of July 7, 2020 there are:
21,101 confirmed positive cases in Riverside County and 506 deaths
518 currently hospitalized in Riverside County; 130 in ICU
345 positive cases in Temecula and no deaths
376 positive cases in Murrieta and 10 deaths

https://www.cdph.ca.gov/Programs/CID/DCDC/Pages/COVID-19/COVID19CountyMonitoringOverview.aspx

Please do your part and keep distance with the workers from Match Point who are working on site to resurface the courts. 
 
If you feel you may have had exposure and are concerned, you may wish to be tested. 
 
Thank you for your understanding during this uncertain time.

The Lodge reopening update
Posted on May 1st, 2020
Dear Four Seasons Community,

As you are aware, the Lodge has been closed since March 19, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Board had voted unanimously in an Open Meeting to close The Lodge and grounds through at least May 1, 2020.

It was our hope to be able to re-open the Lodge today. However, per Governor Newsom’s “stay-at-home” order which has been put in place, we are unable to open The Lodge and grounds until further notice. At this time, we do not have a date. It is important to consider the safety of our residents, with being a 55+ community – this is the #1 concern and impacts our decisions. We certainly do not want to rush into opening without being fully prepared. The Board and Management continue to monitor CDC and government guidelines to determine when The Lodge can safely reopen for all to enjoy.

The Board and management will continue to communicate with you through the 4seasonsmurrieta.com website, Weekly Windup, and email blasts. Please share this information with your neighbors. Anyone who is not currently receiving email from us, can contact The Lodge to get their email added to our distribution list. Staff will be available via email and telephone only. Telephone hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00am-noon, Saturday and Sunday 10:00am-2:00pm.

Email: 4seasonsfrontdesk@gmail.com
Phone: 951-461-0072

Stay Safe! Stay Informed!
