The Voice of the Community

In the early 1970’s, the property owners formed the

Sorrento East Property Owners Association aka SEPOA

The association carries out its functions through an elected board

and a number of committees, all of which are volunteers .

Members receive Information, Community News, Human Interest Stories, Annual Membership Directory, Community Forum, SEPOA Sponsored Events and may participate and vote in the Annual Meeting.

                    Some of what SEPOA does for the community:  

  • SEPOA represents the homeowners best interests and communicate to local governments and other agencies including public services, utilities, environmental health, safety, and zoning

  • SEPOA communicates to the membership through monthly and annual meetings and this website

  • SEPOA have committees that self governs deed restrictions, building plans, neighborhood maintenance, supports a volunteer security patrol among others and The SEPOA Outreach Program

  • SEPOA collects modest yearly dues to support these activities along with maintaining gates, common areas and payment of  utilities.

  • SEPOA organizes social and recreational activities like an annual picnic for members and their guests.

Why practice social distancing?

COVID-19 spreads mainly among people who are in close contact (within about 6 feet) for a prolonged period. Spread happens when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks, and droplets from their mouth or nose are launched into the air and land in the mouths or noses of people nearby. The droplets can also be inhaled into the lungs. Recent studies indicate that people who are infected but do not have symptoms likely also play a role in the spread of COVID-19.

It may be possible that a person can get COVID-19 by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or eyes. However, this is not thought to be the main way the virus spreads. COVID-19 can live for hours or days on a surface, depending on factors such as sunlight, humidity, and the type of surface. Social distancing helps limit opportunities to come in contact with contaminated surfaces and infected people outside the home.

Although the risk of severe illness may be different for everyone, anyone can get and spread COVID-19. Everyone has a role to play in slowing the spread and protecting themselves, their family, and their community

Tips for social distancing

  • Follow guidance from authorities where you live.

  • If you need to shop for food or medicine at the grocery store or pharmacy, stay at least 6 feet away from others. Also consider other options:

    • Use mail-order for medications, if possible.

    • Consider a grocery delivery or pick up service.

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face covering when around others, including when you have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store.

    • Cloth face coverings should NOT be placed on children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.

    • Keep at least 6 feet between yourself and others, even when you wear a face covering.

  • Avoid gatherings of any size outside your household, such as a friend’s house, parks, restaurants, shops, or any other place. This advice applies to people of any age, including teens and younger adults. Children should not have in-person play dates while school is out. To help maintain social connections while social distancing, learn tips to keep children healthy while school’s out.

  • Work from home when possible. See additional information for critical infrastructure workforce from Cyber security and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).

  • Avoid using any kind of public transportation, ride sharing, or taxis, if possible.

  • If you are a student or parent, talk to your school about options for digital/distance learning.
