Slovenska Pristava Covid-19 Update – May 21, 2020

Dear Pristava Members,

We’re sending this update as of May 21st, due to ongoing changes with COVID-19 regulations. Our goal is to keep our members informed during these unprecedented times. As communities begin to open, life looks different than it did before COVID-19. During the summer season, families are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch, visit the chapel, walk the grounds, swim at the pool and enjoy the scenery that Pristava has to offer.

Please look over this important information as we adhere to COVID-19 regulations. Here are the Pristava guidelines which we need all members to follow in accordance with Ohio and CDC guidelines.

  1. Maintain social distancing of 6 feet between individuals at all times.
  2. No gatherings in groups of different households.
  3. We strongly encourage all members to wear masks or face coverings.
  4. Practice good personal hygiene including washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, refrain from touching eyes, nose and mouth.
  5. Members should stay home if they are sick, not feeling well or exhibit any COVID-19 symptoms (fever, persistent cough, muscle pain, loss of taste, difficulty breathing).
  6. Bathrooms will be cleaned and disinfected regularly.
  7. The bar and kitchen will have very limited if any availability during Sunday events; limited food offerings will be available and the servers will be required to use masks and appropriate hand coverings.


Although Opening Day is cancelled, you are all still welcome to enjoy the Pristava grounds. Limited food and drink will be available, so feel free to come out for a drive on Opening day and enjoy the company of fellow members.

June 21st: Spominska Masa will be held at noon at the Chapel followed by limited food options/bar open. Please refrain from driving past the Chapel during Mass.

Have some time to spare? Do you have a teen that needs Volunteer/Service Hours? Families and individuals are encouraged to help maintain and beautify Pristava as we need many hands to lay mulch, perform grounds clean up, edging/trimming, brush removal, rake leaves, power wash, pull weeds, general landscaping, clean/organize the kitchen, painting and dusting, window washing and more! Chapel and pool clean up is also needed.

Bring your own tools- heavy duty gloves, battery/electric/gas trimmers, gas/blade edgers, extension cords, hammers, blowers, buckets, garden tools-shovels/hoes/garden gloves/rakes.

Cleaning materials will be supplied. Lunch/beverages will be provided by the Pensioners on both days. Social distancing will be required, please bring masks as needed.

Contact Louise Sulecki at 440-665-0040 if you have questions or are interested in volunteering. We will have service forms available for students who need community service hours.

Do you have a pick up truck? We are in need of someone to pick up/drop off bags of mulch before Wednesdays clean up. Please contact Frank Vidmar for details at 440-478-3254.
