Audie Murphy Ranch Community Association Emergency Rules – Swimming Pools Revision Adopted Date: May 7, 2020
To preserve the health of our members and prevent the spread of COVID-19 the following Emergency Rules have been adopted by the Board of Directors for a length of time yet to be determined. As the situation evolves, the Audie Murphy Ranch Community Association’s Board of Directors will remain flexible and adaptive to further guidance provided by the City of Menifee, the County of Riverside, and the State of California.
At this time, the Board has determined to phase the reopening of certain common area facilities on a trial basis. In the event that it appears that the rules are not being followed or social distancing is not being maintained, the Board will consider reclosing the facilities and advanced notice of the decision may not be possible. As an initial step, the Pool facilities will be reopened for recreational enjoyment by individual households, subject to the rules below. Do not enter the pool area without a reservation.
CORONAVIRUS COMMON AREA USE ADVISORY
Risk of Use: The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is a worldwide risk to human health. COVID- 19 is highly contagious and has a mortality rate many times greater than the flu. COVID-19 can spread easily and exponentially. While people of all ages are at risk of catching COVID-19, persons especially at risk are those with compromised immune systems and the elderly. Persons over 65 years of age may be at particular risk.
Stay at Home Order: In order to reduce the spread of COVID-19, the State of California, as well as many California cities and counties have issued “Safer at Home” orders, with exceptions for essential activities.
Acceptance of Risk: By entering into the common area, the member agrees as follows:

- When using the common area amenities, members should take all reasonable and necessary precautions to protect yourself and others from the spread of COVID-19. Further, it is your responsibility to exercise care to protect yourself, such as assessing your own risks, which may include age, underlying health conditions, possible exposure to COVID-19, doctor’s recommendations, or local, state and federal recommendations.
