COVID-19 has created a new normal as it relates to events and in-person gatherings. But if we’ve learned anything, we now know that adapting doesn’t have to mean canceling. With that thought in mind, The Landings Association held its first-ever Virtual Annual Meeting on Tuesday, March 2, at 7 p.m.

When we bought our lot in 1998, there was no Dog Park in The Landings. There were few dog parks anywhere. But when we started building our home in 2001, a committee had been formed that actively raised money to build the Park we now enjoy. When we moved in, I joined the Park the first day.

If you use the Landings Dog Park, you must pay your fair share.  Please purchase your 2021 purple dog tag today! Remember, owners of visiting dogs must undertake the same responsibilities as members, including being liable for any aggressive behavior, damages, vet bills, etc. 

The Dog Park Committee currently is studying solutions for the muddy turf in the large area at the Park.

Vaccinations, parasite prevention, rabies, and health certificates are basic prevention protocols for the well-being of your furry family member. The Landings Dog Park requires proof of vaccinations (Rabies, Bordatella, DHLP/Parvo) for all dogs before the issuance of a Dog Park tag. As a responsible pet owner, it’s important to discuss preventive care and treatments with your Veterinarian as they aid in your pet's health. 

Uptick in Numbers for 31411

The cumulative number of COVID-19 cases for Skidaway Island is 337 positive test results. This is an increase of 12 cases since last week's report. Even though eight or nine seems like a small number, given the size of our population, anything more than five cases per week puts us in the High Category of Community Transmission Index. Please continue to be careful out there!
