Rittenhouse Claridge Residents
We hope you are continuing to stay well and following the instructions provided by local, state, and federal agencies. The guidance from the Center For Disease Control (CDC) is comprehensive and a very helpful resource. For the safety of all team members and our residents, we have implemented policies with the guidance of these resources in mind. Please read below in full:
Testing & Vaccines
Our team is working diligently to keep safe and healthy at Rittenhouse Claridge, but we need your help too. For the safety of all team members and our residents, masks covering and social distancing is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED FOR THOSE WHO ARE UNVACCINATED. Mask wearing is optional for individuals who are fully vaccinated. If you are not feeling well, please stay home and follow CDC guidelines.
For more information about ongoing local Covid updates, safety, testing, and vaccinations, check out the the Philadelphia Department of Public Health website.
Maintenance will address all work orders as usual. Before entering your home, maintenance technicians will ask basic health questions, to make sure it is safe to enter. If requested, Maintenance techs will wear a face covering and all the necessary PPE (personal protective equipment) when inside your home. You can submit a non-emergency maintenance request by logging in to your resident portal HERE.
Residents should only flush toilet paper down the toilet. Despite labels calling them “flushable,” wet wipes and cleaning papers will clog drains and cause problems. Disposable masks and other PPE should never be flushed down the toilet or littered on the ground.
We know that during this “social distancing” time, residents are spending more time in their homes and using their kitchen appliances more often. As such, we are circulating some home fire safety tips, with more available online from the National Fire Prevention Association.
- Never leave your stove or oven unattended while lit
- Always check your oven before lighting to make sure no flammable items are inside
- Use your vent fan and your range hood fan every time you are cooking
- To clear the smoke from your apartment, make sure your kitchen and bathroom vent fans are on and open your window(s) immediately
- Do not open doors to the common hallway to clear smoke from your kitchen. It will likely set off the main building alarm.
The Leasing Office is open, and staff are ready to assist you! The office is open as usual, but appointments are encouraged. Please give us a call if you would like to schedule an appointment to meet with one of our Leasing & Management Team members. As with the rest of the building, if you are unvaccinated we strongly recommend continuing social distancing and mask wearing in the Leasing Office.
We encourage residents to continue to follow the guidelines provided by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. If you fall ill, please seek medical attention and consult your healthcare provider with any medical questions.
As always, thank you for calling a Kaiserman Community your home!
