As we prepare for the broader return of employees, customers, and visitors to Mary Brickell Village as local, state and federal mandates are lifted, we have compiled research, guidance and input from some of the country’s leading experts to develop a comprehensive property-level operating plan to incorporate new protocols for operating during this transition period. We hope these guidelines reflect the level of service you have come to expect from us and provide a level of assurance and comfort that the safety and health of our community is of paramount importance.
With many of our staff members operating as “Essential Service Providers” these last three months, we at Rockhill have had ample time to consider requisite modifications to our own team’s operating procedures to promote the health and safety of our community in the current environment. As mandates are lifted, our employees will complete a daily personal health screening prior to arriving at work each day, including a temperature check and a confirmation that they are symptom-free. Our staff and vendors are required to wear face coverings in all tenant spaces, stores, restaurants, and common areas of the property, and within our office in instances where appropriate social distance cannot be maintained. We have created a modified work schedule to allow for staggered shifts, and alternate workdays to mitigate capacity constraints without impacting service levels.
We provide below a summary of relevant topics which may be most helpful to share with your employees in advance of the broader re-opening plan for the state of Florida, Miami-Dade County and City of Miami. Please be aware that we may need to make near-term modifications to these policies and services in order to comply with the evolving regulatory environment. With a focus on transparency and open communication, we expect to provide frequent and regular updates. We appreciate your flexibility as we work collectively to come together again as a community.
We have missed you and look forward to seeing all of you again soon.
