To our valued Sandy Pines Members and Community:

We are writing to provide an update to the announcement sent Tuesday, July 28, 2020 regarding an employee who tested positive for COVID-19. Thank you for prayers, calls, offers to help and overall patience and understanding of our current situation. Sandy Pines’ leadership continues to work with representatives from the Allegan County Health Department (“ACHD”) reviewing return to work and normal operations process and procedures to protect the health and safety of our workforce and our Sandy Pines and Lake Monterey community. Below are actions Sandy Pines have and/or will be implementing:

    • Administration Office remains closed, but is receiving calls for modems and ballots pick up
  • August 5, 2020 – Committees normally scheduled to utilize Admin Conference Room can resume
    • Must adhere to new Executive Order of no more than 10 people indoors, masks and social distancing required
  • August 7, 2020 – Administration, PSO, Sales Office and LMGC remaining staff are targeted to return
    • Requirements to return per ACHD are ZERO COVID-19 symptoms and NEGATIVE COVID-19 test results
  •  August 10, 2020 – Administration and Sales Office will start receiving scheduled appointments
  • August 12, 202 – Public Safety Office will start receiving scheduled appointments
  • ACHD continues to follow contact tracing steps to identify and communicate to those who may have been exposed

We continue to work with the ACHD to protect our staff and the Sandy Pines Community. We will continue to have some staff working remotely, checking voicemails and emails. We will provide the best assistance we can while working remote.
