UPDATE: A POA Board member reached out to BocaNewsNow.com this morning (December 21, 2020) to update us on the situation at Delaire. While the messaging sent to homeowners is somewhat alarmist in tone — or at least interpreted that way by many contacting BocaNewsNow.com — the board member pointed to the extraordinary efforts being put forth in the community to keep people safe. We have previously reported on those effort and concur that reporting cases of COVID should not be interpreted that a community’s leadership has done anything wrong. To the contrary, it shows just how pervasive COVID is even in places where leaders are implement precautions, rules and regulations. We thank the board member for reaching out, and continue to note everything that Delaire is doing to fight COVID.

“This past weekend has been the worst for the Delaire Community since the on-site of the pandemic. In addition to the news that Gail Karpel tested positive, there were also five more confirmed cases of COVID that were reported to the Club on Saturday. Now is not the time to relax our vigilance. Please remember to wear your mask around the Club when not participating in golf or tennis. Remember that face coverings are required at all times in the staging area, including the starter’s desk and the refreshment center. If you have to quarantine as a result of the virus or while awaiting test results, avoid all contact with others during that period.”
BocaNewsNow.com has learned that a senior member of the Delaire governing organization is in an area ICU with COVID-19.
Delaire was one of the first communities to impose significant restrictions on community access and amenity use. Homeowners tell us, however, that homeowners continue to ignore rules and regulations by inviting guests into the community.
