As we all know, 2020 has been a challenging year. The Covid-19 Pandemic took everyone by surprise, and Silent Valley has not been immune to its impacts. Throughout the spring, we have worked to respond to Federal, State and Riverside County orders and guidelines in order to keep our Owner/Members and Silent Valley team members safe.

We would like to thank everyone for following communications and guidelines specific to Silent Valley operations, keeping social distancing and wearing masks in alignment with Riverside County orders, even when they were more strict than state orders.

Below, please find updates to a fairly wide range of Silent Valley operations. Please know, these modifications continue to focus on the health and safety of Owner/Members, Guests and Silent Valley team members. They are also aligned with State and County guidelines, and we will continue to provide updates as we move into later phases of State and County modifications.

We will also be installing additional hand sanitizer stations, as well as signs to serve as reminders about proper hand washing and overall Covid-19 guidelines to help us all continue to be safe.

Speaking of safety, we also would like to remind everyone that the speed limit within Silent Valley is 10 mph. This applies to all vehicles, including golf carts, scooters, etc. We have seen a visible increase in driving that clearly exceeds this limit, and with the increased number of rigs in the park, particularly those with small children, we need to be mindful of our speed to help avoid potential accidents.

We want to again thank everyone for their compliance with Silent Valley park rules at this challenging time. We are confident we can count on everyone to continue to follow the rules above, as well as posted signs, and ensure their guests are also aware of them and joining in our compliance. We want to do what we can to provide opportunities to enjoy the amenities we are permitted to open, and do so in a way that keeps our Silent Valley family as safe as possible.

Stay safe and we hope to see you soon!
