Dear Residents of Mulberry Square:

Together, we find ourselves in an unprecedented situation with COVID-19. In the past few weeks, things have moved very quickly, and this pandemic is affecting our community, our families and our very way of life. For over a week, non-essential workers have been encouraged to socially distance, and now the State of Michigan has ordered (https://www.michigan.gov/whitmer/0,9309,7-387-90499_90705-522626--,00.html)residents to “Stay at Home, Stay Safe” – which means our multi-family units a Mulberry Square Condominium Association.

What does that mean for us? We know many of our residents live alone and are among the age group that is most vulnerable to this insidious virus. They, like us, are no doubt very concerned as to how they can cope and deal with the everyday needs of existence. This message is intended to encourage you to protect yourself in the current situation and to seek qualified sources to be able to take care of ourselves. In addition to reading this notice, check our website:  www.mulberrysquarecondos.com for additional or updated information.

As a community, your Board hopes that all Mulberry residents resist the temptation to be completely solitary and instead find ways to keep in touch with one another by phone, email or FaceTime. Most importantly, keeping open the lines of communication would help to ensure that you and your neighbors have no pressing essential needs and that everything is ‘OK’. Simply knowing you are being thought of would help during these trying times. Guests & family members providing tasks “necessary to the health and safety of themselves or others” and “maintaining the safety, sanitation and basic needs of their residences” are allowed. Otherwise, remember, other “visitors” are not only a violation of “Stay in Place”, they expose your neighbors in our multi-family community. Our goal is to keep ourselves, our essential service providers & our neighbors safe and healthy.

  • Please familiarize yourself with the State of Michigan orders and FAQ’s at https://www.michigan.gov/coronavirus/ for current information and resources.
  • Many grocery store and area restaurants offer food delivery to your doorstep. Most pharmacies now offer drive-through pick-up for medications.
  • The Bloomfield Township  (https://www.bloomfieldtwp.org/Living-in-Bloomfield/COVID-19-Coronavirus.aspx) and Oakland County (https://www.oakgov.com/health/information/covid-19/Pages/default.aspx) websites offer excellent sources of information on the Covid-19 virus. Also, Bloomfield Township Senior Services Center offers daily delivered meals free-of-charge for citizens over age 60 and may be able to assist with errands and can be contacted at (248) 723-3500. If you need to confirm symptoms, the Oakland County On-Call Nurse is available at (800) 848-5533.

As the doctors and nurses are posting on FaceBook, “You stay home so we can go to work for you!” What does this mean for Mulberry Square – other than washing your hands and not touching your face? Well, as we continue to “Stay in Place” at least until April 13, it means:

  • Sanitizing your environment, including the common hallways, door handles, & handrails. (If you didn’t wipe it down, assume the surface hasn’t been sanitized. Wearing disposable gloves may be necessary if going up or down stairs.) Only you can take precautions for yourself!
  • Practicing physical distancing from other residents. (As you know, at least 6 feet is the distance. It’s tough, but necessary – we have some wonderful neighbors!)
  • Only Essential, Emergency repairs in buildings or units will be performed. For the health & safety of our residents and our service providers, service vendors will only be able to complete emergency work orders.  A non-complete list of repairs that may be performed include:

*Active water leak           *Both toilets inoperable                               *Water backing up in basement

* No hot water                  *Frozen pipes                                    *Beeping smoke detectors

*Unable to secure/lock entryway                                              *Police wellness checks

- All other non-emergency repairs will be recorded and accomplished when safe to do so. You may need to leave a voice message, if you call, but you can also email our property manager pgranowicz@amicondos.com or submit via our website www.mulberrysquarecondos.com .

  • Minimize your time in common areas (hallway) as you run essential errands. Use spray aerosol sanitizer as necessary (air, surfaces) being aware that it may make tile surfaces slick.
  • Follow the Trash & Recycling Guidelines – please review the attached  trash guidelines (also at: http://mulberrysquarecondos.com/documents.aspx). Now, more than ever, no one should have to touch YOUR trash. Only place trash in curbside bins on trash day. NOTHING in basement utility rooms, ever! Not in hallways! If you have bagged trash in advance of trash day, please take it to the red dumpster at clubhouse (which will be emptied on Tuesdays and Fridays). Nothing on the ground. This is nothing new, please read and FOLLOW the guidelines. Recycling may be placed in the BLUE bins anytime (because it is ALWAYS rinsed and dry and never stinky) but trash is NEVER ok to place in stored bins - only bins at curbside on trash day. Thank you for your attention to this most troublesome challenge that requires all of us to be tidy.
  • Maintenance Fees – Continue making your assessments by the due dates. While this is a difficult time, we must still stand together and understand that monthly association dues are still accounted for. If you are going to be late (given the circumstances) please communicate your situation in writing to the Board prior to the due date. Email to pgranowicz@amicondos.com or accounting@amicondos.com to arrange a payment accommodation, per our long-standing policy.

Now as you are aware, the Board and your neighbors are NOT health experts, and we are all navigating our way through a new “virus world” while responding to Executive Orders and remaining good neighbors. Please be aware that some service providers, as a result of the “Stay in Place” orders, are not able to attend to Mulberry. Most significantly, our biweekly cleaning crew will NOT be on site. This means our halls will not be vacuumed until this situation changes. Already we have spring cleaning services scheduled (steam cleaning carpets, window cleaning, etc.) in May, but we need to work together to get through the next few weeks.

Lastly, your calls and inquiries are important to us. Please understand that AMI Condos, Inc. are working remotely, per the “Stay-in-Place” directives. Know that your calls to AMI are recorded and forwarded to the Property Manager. Understanding this is imperfect, but it ensures your message will get through.

Most sincerely,

Board of Directors – Mickey Blashfield, Paul Loock, Eralda Caushaj
