What a wild year 2020 is shaping up to be! I greatly appreciate our boaters and the community coming together to help ensure the safety and health of all those enjoying the Marinas during the closures and limited operations due to COVID-19 in April. 

This week, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of Earth Day by sharing sustainability tips, exploring our backyards, and enjoying the sunshine on our amazing island.

Landings home sales continue in the face of COVID-19… 

Although we began to see “real” effects of COVID-19 in early March as Discovery Visit cancelations mounted and we started to look at operational changes ourselves and then closed the office to operate remotely on March 20, sales are being made.

Dear Friends and Members of CCA Skidaway, 

As you may recall, every year for the past 25 years on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, CCA Skidaway and a group of excited, watchful volunteers have conducted a kids fishing event to help children learn the techniques involved with baiting a hook, tossing a line out into a pond, and experiencing the joy of catching a fish (oftentimes for the very first time).

 As we all try to navigate these uncertain and strange times in which we’re living, we also have to realize how blessed we are to live where we do. The Landings Association and The Landings Club have made this experience so much better for us, and their attempt to keep things “normal” has not gone unnoticed.

In this current COVID-19 environment, I don’t want to subject you to more dire warnings about all the things that might endanger you or your loved ones. Rather, I remind you of something that should make you feel a little more secure.

The following message is courtesy of CCPD and addresses an increase in domestic issues related to COVID-19 sheltering-in-place orders not only in our county but across the country. The Landings is fortunate to have had no reported cases of domestic violence during this time of COVID-19.

The Coastal Health District recently announced that anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 now can be tested and are not required to obtain a physician referral. You must still have a referral, but now your local county health department can make that referral for you. Some doctor’s offices, urgent care centers, and hospitals still can provide tests or refer patients for specimen collection. The self-initiated referral opportunity is just an additional option for individuals interested in being tested for the virus.
