Housekeeping Notices

A friendly reminder to all residents and especially to those that are knowingly not wearing their masks correctly.

Your mask must fit OVER your nose and mouth.

You must wear a mask as soon as you leave your apartment for any reason at all.

We would also strongly recommend you wear a mask every time you open your front door.

If you fail to wear your mask properly you are putting all at Hester Canterbury in potential risk.

If you find face masks untenable, a face shield may be an alternative option. We all have a responsibility to think of the greater good for all in our community.

It can be difficult to always remember your facemask – try leaving one hanging on your internal front door knob as a constant reminder.

You will notice there are hand sanitizers located in all the refuse rooms on all three levels – please use the sanitizer every time after depositing waste in the rubbish chute.
