RE-OPENING AFTER PANDEMIC?
Published May 22, 2020
It looks like we are getting closer to the end of STAY-AT-HOME
orders. Slowly but surely everything is going to be open again,
even with some restrictions.
Northern and Central Europe is setting an example: The Prime
Minister declared this week Slovenia ďPANDEMIC FREE!Ē
The big debate: What should be opened Ė and what should stay
closed for the moment? Opinions differ widely Ė and the media
seems to come up with experts who always bolster the opinion of
the specific media outlet.
I think itís absolutely correct to allow regions, counties
and/or cities to make the specific decisions. Considering the
statistics there is not one-fits-all solution. There are areas
that are heavily infected, while others have barely any reported
cases of virus infection. These numbers should definitely part
of the consideration when and what to open.
But here is the deal: If you donít feel comfortable using the
re-opened amenities and shops and restaurants, please donít go
there. Re-opening these places doesnít mean that somebody is
forcing you to go there.
But please be considerate if you do so and follow the rules made
for these specific re-openings. WE ARE ALL IN THIS

's largest state-wide property owners' advocacy group.
CCFJ works on legislation to help owners living in
associations. He moved to
in 1995 - hoping to retire. He moved into a HOA, where the
developer cheated the homeowners and used the association dues
for his own purposes. End of retirement!
CCFJ was born in the year 2000, when some owners met in
- finding out that power is only in numbers. Bergemann was a
member of Governor Jeb Bush's HOA Task force in 2003/2004.
The organization has two websites to inform interested
homeowners and condo owners:
News Website: http://www.ccfj.net/.
Educational Website: http://www.ccfjfoundation.net/.
We think that only owners can really represent owners, since all
service providers surely have a different interest! We are
trying to create owner-friendly laws, but the best laws are
useless without enforcement. And enforcement is totally lacking
