Penn Estates, POA, continues to monitor recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as those of federal, state, and local officials regarding the global coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The stay at home mandate has now been extended to May 8, and there has been information released on future phased openings. Here is a summary of all modifications currently in place:
Residents Services and Association Administration
The Administrative Office remains closed to walk-in traffic; however, the staff is available from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm, Monday-Saturday, please call (570) 421-4265 leave a voicemail and your call will be returned, or send an email to SusanStrunk@pepoa.org or PhyllisHaase@pepoa.org.

Amenity repairs are fully operational. We ask that all residents do their part in keeping your yard clean, cleaning up any spilled trash, and not littering throughout the community.
The Spring bulk clean-up has been canceled, at this time, and will be rescheduled based on the mandate/stay at home order and Stroud Township.
The 2020 paving roadways are being finalized, and have gone out to bid. The proposed roads are Summerton Circle, Rosewood Terrance, Blue Beech Drive, Burntwood Drive, and Robinwood Terrace. Pipe replacement will take place on the above-mentioned roads and Hyland Drive late Spring.
All social events have been postponed or canceled through May 31. Please watch the association’s official Facebook page and website for all event reschedule dates.
All tennis courts, basketball courts, and playgrounds are closed through Sunday, May 31, 2020.
Pools and Lakes
Historically we have opened our pools and lakes on Memorial Day; we do anticipate a delay in opening due to COVID-19 restrictions. Further details will be provided in the coming weeks.
All Committee meetings during April and May have been canceled.
The Annual Meeting will be held via Zoom on Saturday, May 2, at 10:00 am.
Every individual needs to do their part to slow the spread of COVID-19. These are just some of the recommended actions you should take:
Educate yourself and your family. Conditions are changing daily, keep a 6-foot zone of space around you, avoid small and large group settings, cover your cough, wash your hands often for 20 seconds every time. Use sanitizing gel when soap and water are not readily available.

Conditions, concerns, and actions related to COVID-19 can change daily. Penn Estates will continue to monitor and update its operations accordingly. The Association will provide any further updates on our website, email notification, and our Facebook page.
Please know that management and the Board has been making difficult decisions to protect residents and staff members since COVID-19 began its rapid spread across the U.S. in late February. We have closed amenities, established plans for remote and online communication, strategically evaluated staffing needs, and adopted other prevention strategies, showing the value of crisis leadership.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. We all wish you continued good health!
