  • 📢 IMPORTANT: ACL Safety and Security update of COVID-19

    📢 IMPORTANT: Apple Canyon Lake Safety and Security update of COVID-19

    We would like to inform our property owners ahead of time that small changes have been made to protect our first responders, ambulance personnel, and law enforcement. When a call to 911 is made, the dispatcher will be asking 3-screening questions pertaining to flu symptoms in addition to finding out the nature of the call.
    If you do report flu-like symptoms, the dispatchers relay that information to our personnel responding to your location. Do not be alarmed if you have flu-like symptoms as our first responders, as well as EMTs, and paramedics will greet you wearing a mask over their mouth and nose, gloves, and possibly even a gown.

    If you call for an ambulance, the EMTs/paramedics will ask you some questions when they get to your location to determine if you have any flu-like symptoms and this will be done using “social distancing” of around 6 feet away. None of these precautions will delay your care. Depending on your symptoms, the EMTs/paramedics may also provide you a mask to wear. This helps limit the spread of any illness.

    On many calls, other fire departments and police officers respond with the ambulance to help. Do not be surprised if some of these responders wait outside your home until the EMTs/paramedics assess you for the symptoms of the flu. These small changes help limit the spread of illnesses and keep our responders safe.

    If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to julie.janssen@applecanyonlake.org or give me a call 815-492-0090. 👉 REMEMBER: to cover your cough, wash your hands, avoid close contact (6 feet social distance), keep contact surfaces clean (tabletops, doorknobs, computer keyboards, phones etc.) and most important if you are sick, PLEASE isolate yourself from others.


    Due to the ongoing COVID-19 progression,
    ACL has the following updates:

    • Limit in-person contact at the Association Office: As of this writing, the Association Office is still open for business. This may change as the Coronavirus situation continues to unfold and guidelines from federal, state, and local agencies are released. Our focus is to protect the health and safety of our employees, property owners, visitors, and vendors. We strongly discourage owners from coming to the office unless there is an urgent need. Please call ahead to ensure an in-person interaction is required and the staff member you wish to see is available. We remind our owners that paperwork can be emailed to customerservice@applecanyonlake.org or faxed to 815-492-2160. Amenity tags, stickers, etc. can be mailed to your home or left in the ACL drop box for pickup. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but remember, our focus is on everyone’s health. We are all in this together.
    • Campsite Swap & Assignment Day, Slip Swap, Slip Assignment Day & Sub-License Assignment: We are currently reviewing our options for these events. They will NOT be conducted as usual on the date planned. We will either postpone the events until later in the Spring, or possibly conduct the event electronically using ZOOM teleconferencing. We will be researching the possibility of using ZOOM and reaching out to all those on these waiting lists soon.
    • The Firehouse Fitness Center: Will be closed effective immediately, through April 1st.
    • The March 21st Job Fair: Is canceled. If you had planned on attending and are still interested in applying, please send your resume to carrie.miller@applecanyonlake.org.

  • COVID-19 What You Need to Know

    At this time, we would like to reiterate some simple & easy ways to keep on top of staying healthy. It might not be anything new, but it is nonetheless effective and comes from a reputable source (The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). At this time the Association Office has not cancelled any events and is still open to the public with its normal hours of operation. We have been working together as a team to keep the Office as clean as possible with wiping down keyboards, doorknobs, countertops, community areas, etc. several times throughout the day. Please note that we are getting the same information everyone else is at the same time, so as COVID-19 progresses we will adjust accordingly and keep you informed. Thank you, ACL Staff.
