Dear Neighbors,

The Covid-19 pandemic has  launched us all into uncharted waters.  But, rest assured, our tenured, experienced staff is well prepared.  (And yes, we have plenty of toilet paper.)  In our 35+ years of providing care and services to this community, we have served as a shelter in all times of disaster and pride ourselves on our close relationships with local first responders.

The health and safety of our residents is our top priority.  We have been fortunate, so far, and have no residents, staff or family members (that we know of) with confirmed diagnoses of Covid-19.  We have been working closely and diligently with State of Florida and local officials to ensure that all aspects of life at CountrySide Lakes are not only following, but exceeding, the federal, state, and local guidelines for prevention and containment. 

We are blessed to have an amazing resident population.  The true sense of community is why so many of us call CountrySide Lakes home.  While social distancing is absolutely critical and probably our best line of defense against this virus, there is a difference between that and social isolation.  We have many esteemed residents who fall into the high risk / very high risk categories and, as such, have implemented heightened visitation procedures per the CDC and Governor DeSantis.  We appreciate the understanding and cooperation of all residents and your families.  Most importantly, please don’t forget to use the technology we have at our disposal to continue to connect with loved ones during this period.

We’ll update you regularly, as the situation evolves.  In the meantime, please utilize the CDC and other government websites listed here on this page.

In health,
Charlie Dierke
