Hide-A-Way Lake Response to Coronavirus
Bulletin #4

Hide-A-Way Lake continues to take precautions as the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to evolve. Please follow all CDC and government requirements as we all must do our part during this evolving time.

Please read the following up-to-date actions that are currently in place:

•   Our Governor has issued a shelter in place order as the Mississippi State Department of Health says that is has determined that the state has now reached a critical point in the cycle of the outbreak.
•   Please visit www.msdh.ms.gov, www.cdc.gov, or contact the Mississippi Coronavirus hotline at 877-978-6453. All of these resources feature a wealth of information and are updated regularly.
•   A Hide-A-Way Lake Burn Ban is in effect until further notice. This ban includes fire pits, burn barrels, etc. This ban will help to ease the burden for our first responders.
•   Green boat decals (2019/2020 boat season) will no longer expire on April 30, 2020. The deadline has been extended to May 31, 2020.
•   The HAWL Office is open regular office hours, Monday – Friday from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm. Contact the Office at 601-798-1484 or by email at office@hawlms.net as most business can be conducted over the phone or via email. The Office area is limited to only one person at a time and personal space of six feet must be maintained between all individuals. See Echoes or www.hawlms.com for information on signing up for online ACH payments. If you must come into the Office, please call to schedule an appointment time or you may have to wait. Utilize the locked drop box at the Front Main Gate or the new locked drop box by the restaurant entrance to drop off payments and Office correspondence.
•   All groups, meetings, and events (Board meetings, Committee meetings, WOW, exercise groups, Men’s Club, Breakfast with the Easter Bunny, Easter Egg Hunt, Flea Market, indoor restaurant events, etc.) have been cancelled for the foreseeable future.
•   For all medical calls, contact 911 first before contacting HAWL Security in the appropriate situations. Security will wait for ambulance/EMT assistance at your residence. All gate entrance rules/policies are still in effect. The gate will continue to scan/verify driver’s licenses for entry. Please help reduce the number of unneeded guests in the community.
•   Property Owners and Parents: Please help as all Common Grounds remain open for you to enjoy, but limited to following the CDC requirements of gatherings having a maximum of 10 people remaining at least 6 feet apart. Security is instructed to breakup any non-compliant group. If there is continued non-compliance by the group, the entire group will be sent off of the property. Additionally, there is a HAWL curfew that must be obeyed from 11:00 pm – 5:00 am. If you utilize any of the playground or fitness equipment, please place your cleaning cloth/wipe in the trash. Again, thank you but please continue to exercise caution. Please contact Security immediately if you see anything that causes concern.
•   Waters Edge Restaurant will be open for take-out orders only with great specials at great prices along with a limited menu. Simply call the Restaurant during operating hours to place your order and for curbside pick-up. Check your email daily for the featured restaurant special.
•   Please follow all of the CDC and government requirements as we all must do our part during this evolving time.

It is my prayer daily that all of you and your families are well and this is over soon. I want to assure you that we are here - all departments: Office, Security, Maintenance, Restaurant, and Water. I want to take care of our association, property owners, and staff but please follow the guidelines so this situation can be over as soon as possible.

Thank you.
