1. Is there anyone in my building with COVID-19?
Answer: As of April 3rd, we are not aware of anyone with COVID-19 in our condominiums. Please be aware that under the Health and Protection Act of Ontario we must abide by:
39 (1) No person shall disclose to any other person the name of or any other information that will or is likely to identify a person in respect of whom an application, order, certificate or report is made in respect of a communicable disease, a disease of public health significance, a virulent disease or a reportable event following the administration of an immunizing agent. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.7, s. 39 (1); 2017, c. 25, Sched. 3, s. 1 (3).
However, if we become aware of anyone with COVID-19 you can expect a general announcement of it, whether they are still in the building and what steps are being taken to safeguard everyone.
2. Do I still need to pay my condominium fees?
Answer: Yes. Lawyers have already weighed in on this matter. Condominium fees still need to be paid. Industry leaders are attempting to see if the provincial or federal government may step in to assist condominiums in any way.
3. My building closed the amenities. Can I hold back any of my condominium fees?
Answer: No, again lawyers have weighed in on this. Full condominium fees must still be paid.
4. Will there be any deferral of condominium fees?
Answer: At this time no board has opted to defer condominium fees. It should be noted all corporations still have expenses such as hydro, water, gas, insurance etc and none of these are being deferred. If your board opts to defer condo fees this will be communicated to you right away.
5. Should visitors be at our building?
Answer: For the most up to date information always consult the local health authority. However as of April 7th only essential service providers should be coming to the building. Residents should not be receiving visitors for social reasons.
