A Note on COVID-19


To Our RLACEI Retirees:

At the time of this writing, just as we thought things were getting close to some normalcy (many of our favorite restaurants were opening, barber shops, hair and nail salons were opening), Gov. Gavin Newsom has announced all California counties to re-close restaurants, movie theaters, family entertainment centers, wineries, zoos and bars for indoor service.

Unfortunately, California has shown a spike in new cases with Los Angeles County in the lead. So what it means for most of us, and in particular, our retirement community, is that we must continue to limit our social gatherings and wear a mask when in public.

This is a good time to take nature walks, join a class on Zoom, complete that unfinished project, or connect with long-lost friends either by telephone or virtually. Since many of our favorite restaurants are providing only takeout and outside dining, try cooking a gourmet meal! Let’s keep our minds active: read a self-improvement book or a book on travel, manage your finances, write letters, clean a closet.

“You have to find a way to respect these new boundaries related to coronavirus, but still live the version of life you’re used to. That’s what life is, regardless of circumstances.” – Caroline Wright

So as we enter another month of sheltering at home, the RLACEI Board asks that you continue to stay safe and be well.
