Dear Spring Run Member,
I wanted to let our members know what the Club is doing to be proactive in preventing a potential spread of coronavirus in Spring Run. Fortunately, there are no known cases in the Community, and only 19 reported in Florida to date, but there are many residents voicing concerns about the unknown. Members travel abroad, or up North, and can possibly return to spread this disease without even knowing it. To that end, here are some proactive measures we are taking:
- Installed Purell hand sanitizers around the clubhouse. Please use them!
- Purchased a Botanical Disinfectant Solution called Bioesque for our day porter to wipe down handles and surfaces on a daily basis
- Scheduled a complete top to bottom disinfection routine twice a week through our facilities cleaning service.
- Informed employees who are feeling sick to stay home and go to the doctor. We cover them with paid time off so they don’t feel they have to come in when they are ill
- Encourage anyone travelling abroad or coming back from a cruise to self-quarantine themselves until they can get tested.
Mark Oroyan is the point person in charge of Coronavirus Prevention plans and communication, and you can expect more detailed information and helpful tips from him later this afternoon. We are monitoring Lee County Health Dept and the CDC website for up to date information on any new cases, and will stay in touch with you as new information arises. We will be prepared to discontinue large gatherings and alter services in the event it is necessary.
All flu viruses are concerning, as influenza A can disrupt the workplace and harm an older population. Hopefully you got your flu shot this season. The coronavirus is so concerning, though, since there is so much we don’t know about it, and there is no vaccine or cure yet. Therefore, we will be vigilant and proactive to protect our members and employees throughout the course of this event.
Michael G. Zigler, CCM, CAM
Spring Run Golf Club Community Assoc.

Hi Mike and Mark,
It would be proactive and helpful to have all iLife presentations available via video, just as you do BOD meetings. Thanks, Mary T.

Thank you Mike and our Spring Run family for addressing this issue and putting in place steps to keep us all healthy!
I would like to see the food staff wearing gloves.
Wearing gloves does not stop the spread of the virus. I can be transferred just the same as if not wearing gloves. Frequent good hand washing is more effective.
they are wearing gloves in both the kitchen and in the dining rooms.
thank you for your proactive actions gloria rosen
Mike and Mark, What is your take on dear friends and relatives who are planning to come visit? They may not have been overseas or on a cruise ship, but may have innocently been exposed and have no symptoms. Do we wait until someone here gets the virus in that way to go to the next level? I know this is disconcerting to contemplate. However, all of us know how hard it is to say “sorry, but I think we should delay your visit.” Chuck B.
My sense is that most people have taken this seriously, and would understand. They also may want to avoid flying. As the person responsible for over 1700 people in this Community, I would like to discourage travel by our members and their guests if possible until we get control of this.
Dining should cancel all buffets. I witnessed “head scratching “ manners last Wednesday at happy hour. It is impossible to police members lacking common sense around a public food table.
We did. We just sent out an email about that.
I would just like to say I’ve belonged to four other ( two of them very expensive to be a member) country clubs. I would like to say SPRING RUN C. C. Is by far rhe best run club I have belonged too. I feel this club has and continues to do what’s BEST for the owners here in this wonderful community. Thank you Mike, Mark , Jeff, Scott and patty and all of the spring Run C. C. EMPLOYEES ‼️🤗‼️
