Apartment Living in Coronavirusville

Dear internet,

So my apartment building has set forth a bunch of new rules to limit the spread of Covid-19.

We’re supposed to not use our hands to touch any surfaces such as door knobs, elevator buttons, etc.

Packages aren’t being held in the mail room downstairs—they’re being delivered to our doors, which I guess is more sanitary?

We’re not supposed to hang out in any common spaces. The lobby basically looks like a day room at a nursing home so this is Definitely A Good Idea.

No repairs or renovations, except for emergencies, whilst the pandemic rages on.

My building is full of very old people and very young people. I hope these measures help protect us from coronavirus.

Things that the building could also do:

-tell people to stop smoking indoors. folks, if secondhand marijuana smoke could save us from covid-19, though, you’d be national heroes.

-stop people from airbnb’ing their flats. should be obvious but…yeah. my building has an airbnb problem. looks like a hotel every weekend.

yours in community living,

Daya
