A Message from the Board of Directors
April 8, 2020
The BOD would like you to know River Ridge employees and volunteers are taking a proactive approach toward making improvements to our common areas as well as keeping our community as healthy as possible to prevent the potential spread of germs during this unprecedented pandemic.
Here is just a portion of positive steps being taken in River Ridge in general and in this time of Covid-19 awareness.
Your Board of Directors has been in constant contact over the last 2 weeks. They are working diligently to insure River Ridge is as safe as possible. They have canceled all social activities. The 7 of them did meet at the Kountry Kitchen this past Saturday to put together a plan and talk about the safety and welfare of all property owners, as well as discuss options for property owners who may be adversely affected financially by this pandemic.
The Association office is keeping its glass partition closed to protect you. Hand sanitizer is available, Lysol is used frequently and surface areas are being sanitized regularly.
At the security office you can use the walk-up window to limit exposure. Packages and deliveries are being sprayed with Lysol and counters wiped down regularly.
Maintenance has an automated sanitizer machine which is used to clean the Kountry Kitchen, Clubhouse and all bathhouses. This Kaivac cleaning system is proven to remove germs and other bio-contaminants from high risk surfaces and touch points that others leave behind.
During this time special attention is being given to refilling all essentials such as soap and paper products, but oftentimes, these items are being stolen.
All bathhouse water heaters are functioning.
All bathhouses are currently being up-fitted with new insulation and gas heat.
The ceiling in Adventure bathhouse is currently being lowered (all labor provided by volunteers) to be more efficiently heated. Employees and volunteers are asked to frequently and thoroughly wash their hands and use hand sanitizer. They have been asked to use good respiratory etiquette by covering coughs and sneezes. Anyone who is sick with a cough or fever has been asked to stay home. They are also encouraged to practice social distancing, and they are using gloves and face masks with more frequency.
Safety handrails and upgrades at Groundhog.
Cleaning out the storage area.
Here’s what you can do
Avoid using the bathhouse, but if you must, try to go when no one else is there and limit the length of your visit. Spray disinfectant on surfaces before you touch them, take your own towels with you and clean up after yourself when you leave. If you notice a bathhouse needs attention, please report the specifics to security right away. If you see someone abusing the privilege of using our bathhouses, destroying property or stealing, please report it to security.
If you know of an employee, volunteer or property owner who is struggling in any way during this time, please go to the office and fill out a concern form.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
Put distance between yourself and other people.
Stay home if you’re sick with any type of illness.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use hand sanitizer.
Clean AND disinfect frequently-touched surfaces daily including tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
Call and check on your neighbors, especially the elderly and those with compromised immune systems who are at greater risk from the virus. You can offer assistance by running errands or picking up grocery items and simply by talking with them in this time of isolation.
What We Know about COVID-19 from the Centers for Disease Control.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow and immediately clean your hands.
If you develop flu-like symptoms treat it as you normally would and call your Doctor. If you develop emergency warning signs such as trouble breathing, persistent pain or pressure in your chest, confusion, bluish lips or face, seek medical attention immediately.
Stay informed. For more accurate virus information, please do not rely fully on media outlets, go to the Centers for Disease Control website at CDC.gov.

911 Calls From Your Cell Phone
November 18, 2019
Many property owners in River Ridge do not have a land line and rely on their cell phones. If you have ever had to call 911, you may have found yourself speaking with the dispatcher in Warren County, NC. This can cause loss of information or a long delay before the information is received by the proper authorities.
The direct line to the Mecklenburg County, VA 911 dispatcher is (434) 738-6191.
This number has been added to the phone numbers page on our website. If you are a cell phone user, please add this number to your phone under emergency numbers.

Absentee Ballot Question
July 23, 2019
The question came up about if and how a property owner can change their vote once they have marked their Absentee Ballot. In order to maintain the integrity of the voting process and ensure that there is no appearance of impropriety, there are no procedures or circumstances in the election rules that allow for changing a vote once the Absentee Ballot has been filled-out. However, the property owner can elect to NOT MAIL the Absentee Ballot, and instead he/she may come to the In-House Voting on 17 August and cast their vote in person. Please remember, you cannot vote both by Absentee Ballot and In-House Ballot; doing so will invalidate both ballots.
1. Ballots must be filled out in INK
2. DO NOT put ballots through mail slot at office. BALLOTS MUST BE MAILED.
July 22, 2019
The 2019 Election Notice of Annual Meeting and Absentee Ballots have been mailed out.
There have been several questions raised about the space for "Lot #" on the Absentee Ballot return envelope. The Election Committee uses this to sort the envelopes by village before they are opened. The roster we receive from the River Ridge Admin office is divided by village, so the lot number on the envelope makes the verification process go faster. If a property owner does not want to write their lot number on the envelope, there is NO PENALTY. Their ballot will still be counted. This is the same procedure that has been followed for the past several years.
