Sarasota County does not have a mandatory mask mandate, however masks are encouraged and local businesses do have the right to require masks upon entry. The city of Sarasota does have a mandatory mask mandate for all indoor and outdoor public places. Please note, Siesta Key and Longboat Key are not within the Sarasota city limits.

Grocery stores and gas stations throughout Sarasota County are posting signs requiring masks upon entry, so please plan accordingly.

Restaurants are open and are allowed to serve customers inside up to 50 percent of the building’s capacity. Outdoors, there are no limits on occupancy, but tables must be kept far enough apart to allow for social distancing.

Bars are allowed to serve people seated indoors up to 50 percent of the building’s capacity and allow unlimited outdoor seating as long as social distancing is maintained. In addition to bars, the new rule applies to breweries and other alcohol vendors.

Board meetings will occur this month for every resort to present compensation options. Once these options are approved, resort staff will notify all owners who lost their vacation time this past spring due to resort closures.

The patience, kind words, and understanding of the owners have been an inspiration during this crisis, thank you. We are one step closer to resuming normal life. As always STAY SAFE.

Update on Cunningham Property Management managed properties (COVID-19 response)

Dear Owners of Cunningham Property Management Corp managed properties,

It is our pleasure to announce that the following resorts will open on May 23, 2020 to owners only at the following resorts:

Calini Beach Club, Gulf Tides, Little Gull, Longboat Bay Club, and The Beach Club St. Augustine.  Siesta Sands 6 timeshare units are currently open to owners.

There are a few restrictions owners must be aware of before deciding to travel to their resorts.  Recreation areas such as spas, meeting/recreation rooms, pools, and some common areas may be closed to owner use.  Many services such as stay over cleans and towel exchange may not be available.  Your specific resort will have the detail and will be in contact prior to your check-in.

Please be aware this is an ever-evolving situation and access to certain amenities at the resort may change at a moment’s notice. 

Cleaning:  Each owner will be sent their resort’s specific cleaning regime which will include unit and common area cleaning procedures.  Please be aware the staff at each resort will need more time to completely clean and sanitize each unit after each guest.  This may require a later check-in time than you have been accustomed to.  We will appreciate your cooperation and patience.

All owners should bring with them their own personal protection equipment such as masks and gloves.  Also, we have a limited supply of hand sanitizer and disinfectant cleaners.  You will need to bring these items for yourself to use during your stay.  Responsibility of staying clean, washing hands, and adhering to social distancing rules will be on each individual owner and family member.  Small resort staff and management cannot make the resorts safe without the help of each owner and as we all have learned there will be risk in anything we do outside our homes these days.

Travel:  The governor of Florida created an executive order that requires any person traveling from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Louisiana, to self-quarantine for 14 days at their designated destination in Florida. Florida is taking these travel restrictions very seriously.  State officials are stopping travelers at the border and in airports to determine if you must self-quarantine. Travelers who are directed to self-quarantine must be available for follow up contact by the state and are subject to 60 days in jail for violations. Management is being asked to help enforce the quarantine. If you have a one-week reservation, information regarding where you will self-quarantine for the balance of the time will be required.

Everyone at Cunningham Property Management and all resort staff sincerely thank all of the owners’ continued support and patience through such a trying time. Please, STAY SAFE and HEALTHY.

Thank You,
Richard Cunningham
