Consistent with the latest policies on restrictions, gatherings within residences are now limited to 10 individuals. At present, we interpret this to mean, that residents occupants plus their guests, should not exceed 10 individuals.
The signage throughout will be updated this week to reflect this change.
All other guidelines and restrictions remain in place at this time:

Please remember. The fine approved by the Board on August 10th is $50, to double for any subsequent event up to $1000. There is no warning. The notice you receive will indicate the fee is being charged to the Unit Owner. Several fees have already been charged in response to verified complaints of the current COVID-19 Response Policies:
We’ve received many complaints from residents – it has been a lot of work and a lot of surveillance to review. But we will take the time to investigate each complaint. For every complaint, so far we’ve been 100% successful in identifying the person either by video, or the key fob records. If you observe an infraction, e-mail us at email@example.com.
In two cases of face covering violations, the situation involved delivery personnel. For example, in one event an Instacart Driver entered and followed someone through the door and up the elevator, without a face covering. In that case, the occupant is a renter. The Owner was charged $50. We do not enforce this with Instacart, Amazon, Mariano’s, Tedino’s, Walmart, or any other delivery personnel. That is the customers job – the customer does need to engage with the carrier and provide instructions that face coverings are mandatory on Park Tower property.
PLEASE, instruct all renters, occupants, family, guests, visitors, deliveries, contractors etc., EVERYONE MUST wear a face covering over your nose and mouth throughout Park Tower’s common areas, 100% of the time. Ultimately, Unit Owners will be charged as they are responsible for all activity related to their unit under the governing documents. But renters not complying (or their visitors) is a health and safety issue violating most leases in Chicago.
In an effort to address complaints of crowding on elevators and residents not wearing appropriate face coverings (and not wearing them over both the nose and mouth), at their meeting on August 10th, the Board of Directors strengthened the Association’s enforcement policies. The goal is to improve our efforts to safeguard the building, residents and community, but the changes were made because of the number of complaints the Association has received.
All Occupant Owners and Residents – You are responsible for your family, guests, visitors, contractors, etc. If they enter the building without following these policies, the Association treats it as if you are not following these policies. Please instruct anyone coming to Park Tower as such, to follow these policies.
Landlord Owners – You are responsible for your renters, and their family, guests, visitors, contractors, etc. We therefore recommend anyone who rents a unit, to instruct your tenant to follow these policies. To do so should be consistent with standard language in any Chicago Apartment or Condominium Lease.
The enforcement fees will be assessed to the Owner’s account, for which ever Unit an individuals infraction is associated with. For example – if you rent Unit 1313 to John Smith, and John Smith has 3 guests over this week, and they do not wear face coverings, fees of $50, $100 and $200 will be charged to 1313’s account.
Beyond these policies, please don’t forget the basics!
Stay Home and Stay Safe. Please self-quarantine if you are feeling sick, have a fever, have a sick family member at home, or believe it is possible you came into contact with the virus.
For everyone’s increased protection and well- being, remember The Three W’s:
WASH your hands regularly, and thoroughly for a minimum of 20 seconds.
WEAR your face covering, over your mouth and nose.
WATCH your distance, and be mindful of others personal space, keeping 6 feet of distance between you and anyone else wherever possible.
Feel free to share any questions or concerns by writing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also welcome and encourage anyone to contact us if you observe violations of these policies. The sooner more of us are following these restrictions, the safer you, your neighbors, the staff and the community will be. Thank you.
