Are board members liable for taking these precautionary actions that restrict the use of amenities and property services?
Board members should first follow the governmental recommendations or mandates for shutting down common areas and amenities in an Association. Amenities that gather groups of 10 or more people like gyms, spas, kids rooms and card rooms should be closed. Most properties are closing pools and beaches and some municipalities are requiring these amenities be closed. Management Offices are now working with a closed door policy to prevent owners and staff from coming into contact in small rooms as a measure to promote the health of all personnel.
It is our opinion that Board Members are not liable for closing amenities as a measure to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in their community.
