MVF mask procedures, community center use and more
Since March 2020, Montgomery Village Foundation’s (MVF) priority has been maintaining safe environments for our residents, staff, program participants and community visitors. As restricitions from the county and state are lifted, we are continuing some practices to maintain a safe environment.
The MVF Office is open, and most employees are back on site. However, a portion of our staff continue to telework, returning to the office in a phased approach. It is our goal to have the office fully staffed again beginning Tuesday, July 6.
All fully vaccinated (2 weeks after final dose of vaccine) employees and visitors are no longer required to wear a mask indoors. For employees and visitors who are not fully vaccinated, MVF kindly requests that a mask be worn indoors and when interacting with others. We ask that you do this via an honor system and respect your privacy on this matter.
MVF is still encouraging meetings to be held virtually, when possible, for efficiency. However, if the need arises to schedule an in-person meeting or a meeting with an office visitor presents itself we are prepared to accommodate these requests.
Reservation of community centers for community user groups (June through August) has reopened. Groups may start using the facilities beginning Tuesday, June 1. We will also resume reservation of facilities for Private Rentals (June through August) beginning Tuesday, June 1 on a first come, first served basis. Private functions will be approved to begin the week of June 14.
Most services—assessment payments, Activity Card renewal, Property Improvement Request forms, questions for community managers, program registration, etc.—remain available online, or can be answered with a phone call or e-mail. This is a very efficient way of doing business but if you want to come into the office or have a meeting in person we are available but expect visitors to abide by the mask policy if not fully vaccinated. MVF staff is committed to getting back to you within one business day, probably sooner. If you are unsure of the best way to proceed, please call 301-948-0110 before coming to the office.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation over the last 14 months. By working together, we were able to keep our residents and staff safe, and were able to provide continuous service to you!
