While COVID-19 is not over, the Foundation has been monitoring pandemic indicators such as the positivity rate being below 5% for a sustained period. Local and statewide data has evidenced that the pandemic has eased in Collier County and Florida. While we will need to remain vigilant for any early warning signs of any resurgence, the Foundation will relax our precautionary mask protocols.
Effective immediately at all Foundation Facilities, masks will become optional for vaccinated Members & Guests. The Foundation strongly recommends unvaccinated individuals to continue to wear masks. Foundation staff with proximity face-to-face interaction with other individuals, where the mutual knowledge of vaccination status is unknown, will continue to wear masks.
Please know that your health is our number one priority and that the Pelican Bay Foundation continues to operate focused on maintaining a safe environment for our members, guests, and staff. Thank you for your support in these efforts to communicate, and we thank you for your patience, flexibility, and understanding as we work together to promote the health and well-being of our community during this time.
