Aspen Skiing Company (Skico) has warned employee housing tenants that failure to comply with covid-19 restrictions could result in eviction, with just 72-hours notice.
An email from the housing director said, “failure to comply with public health codes and COVID-19 restrictions on gatherings will result in consequences — no ifs, and, or buts”, reports the Aspen Times. Some of the restrictions involve a strict no-guest policy and mask-wearing and social distancing measures.
“The unsafe, virus spreading practices of a significant number of residents has resulted in an alarming increase in the number of infections now present throughout employee housing. As we endeavor to contain the spread of COVID-19 cases we have no choice but to take a more regimented approach to enforcement of safe practices to contain the virus. Violation of the laws of the health order as they pertain to visitors, mask-wearing and social distancing will result in eviction.”

Tenants who refuse to abide by the rules by not signing the paperwork are also subject to eviction. The email signed off:
“We’re giving every resident a choice. Follow the laws and continue to live in employee housing or disregard the laws and leave. … If you can’t comply, we need to say goodbye.”
Big White Ski Resort in British Columbia, Canada, had a large outbreak of covid-19. More than 136 cases have been traced back to the resort. Parties and gatherings at employee housing were blamed. Big White responded by firing several employees ‘for breaking a social responsibility contract’ that includes clauses such as reporting illness symptoms to managers and following public health orders around social gatherings.

Funny how any other landlord is banned from evicting tenants right now.
