NEWS UPDATE
 
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24, 2021
 
 
According to the most recent state health guidelines, COVID-19 vaccinations are now available to seniors age 55 and older and those with pre-existing conditions at locations throughout
the Las Vegas Valley. 
 
As of April 5, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak is opening up the availability of the COVID-19 vaccines to all Nevadans age 16 and older statewide. “Opening up on April 5 does not mean every Nevadan will be able to make an appointment and get a vaccine on April 5,” Sisolak explained. “Availability of the vaccine and appointments will still be dependent on the allocation of doses we receive from the federal government. And while we open up eligibility, we will also use every resource we have, including any federal government support to reach every community and remove barriers to access for our most vulnerable and at highest risk of severe illness due to COVID-19.”
 
For more information, please select the links below to determine the closest location that is accepting reservations for the 1st and 2nd doses.

COMMUNITY CENTER USAGE GUIDELINES  
 
On Thursday, February 11, Nevada Governor Sisolak announced the timeline for Nevada’s “safe reopening plan” that began on Monday, February 15 with planned capacity increases on March 15 and other plans for Saturday, May 1. He said statewide coronavirus trends were moving in the right direction and credited this momentum as the reason for his decision.
 
On February 15, the capacity allowance increased from 25% to 35%.
 
This change does not affect the current health and safety guidelines currently in place at the Community Center, including wearing a mask and adhering to the 6-foot distancing mandate.
 
Due to the Governor’s mandate, fitness classes will be increased in size from 5 participants to 6 participants.  On March 15, fitness class size will increase back to 8 participants.
 
Even though the Governor is allowing reopening of the locker rooms and single stall shower rooms, the Board has decided to keep them closed at this time out of an abundance of caution.
 
   On March 15, the capacity allowance increased from 35% to 50%.
 
*  The only change planned is that fitness classes will increase
from 6 to 8 participants.
 
On April 5, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak is opening up the availability of the COVID-19 vaccines to all Nevadans age 16 and older statewide.
 
On May 1, as the state transitions to local authorities, statewide directives that will remain in place to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 will include, but are not limited to:
 
*  Face Covering Mandate
*  Social Distancing Safety Protocols
 
Masks are still required to be worn at all times and social distancing safety protocols will remain in place when you are around anyone who is not part of your immediate household, including gatherings anywhere inside or outside.   
 
Based on the Governor’s mandates, the following health guidelines will be strictly enforced inside and outside of the
Sun City Aliante Community Center: 
 
All residents are now required to wear masks at all times
inside and outside the Community Center.

IRS Announcement 
More Economic Impact Payments
Taxpayers should watch mail for checks, debit cards
 
The Internal Revenue Service announced that the next batch of Economic Impact Payments will be issued to taxpayers this week, with many of these coming by paper check or prepaid debit card.
 
No action is needed by most people to obtain this round of Economic Impact Payments (EIPs). People can check the Get My Payment tool on IRS.gov on to see if the their payment has been scheduled.
“The IRS continues to send the third round of stimulus payments in record time,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. “Since this new set of payments will include more mailed payments, we urge people to carefully watch their mail for a check or debit card in the coming weeks.”
 
 The vast majority of taxpayers receiving EIPs will receive it by direct deposit. In addition, the IRS and the Bureau of the Fiscal Service leveraged data in their systems to convert many payments to direct deposits that otherwise would have been sent as paper checks or debit cards. This accelerated the disbursement of these payments by weeks.
Watch the mail for paper checks, EIP Cards
 
Taxpayers should note that the form of payment for the third EIP may be different than earlier stimulus payments. More people are receiving direct deposits, while those receiving them in the mail may get either a paper check or an EIP Card – which may be different than how they received their previous stimulus payments. IRS and the Treasury Department urge eligible people who have not received a direct deposit to watch their mail carefully during this period.
 
Paper checks will arrive by mail in an envelope from the U.S. Department of the Treasury. For those taxpayers who received their tax refund by mail, this paper check will look similar, but will be labeled as an “Economic Impact Payment.”
 
 
   
The Webinars will be announced
in a separate eBlast.
 
   
 
   
Weekly E-Blasts   
 
We will continue to update you on a weekly basis.   
  We look forward to the day when we begin to offer all of our 
amazing events and activities. 
 
Sincerely, The Sun City Aliante Board of Directors
