Covid 19 - Corona Virus

posted Mar 16, 2020, 10:10 AM by Bill Braun

Text of Town-wide Email of 3-16-20:

We have obviously been monitoring the Corona Virus situation closely, in particular the measures taken by nearby communities, with an eye toward how developments might affect Frye Island and its residents.  There seem to be three issues with respect to Frye Island: 1) Whether allowing people coming from disparate communities to repopulate Frye Island introduces incremental risk of propagation of disease, either to the incoming Frye Island residents or others; 2)  Whether any provisions special to Frye Island will be needed to prevent spread of the virus, and 3) How we will handle a case where someone on Frye Island contracts the virus.

At present we plan to open the island on time on April 24, and will update you if that changes.  If you have or suspect you may have the virus, please do not come to Frye Island until you are virus free and/or after the 2-week quarantine period.  In particular do not plan to self-quarantine on Frye Island.  Assuming we open as usual, the same precautions we are taking in our home communities: general good judgment, handwashing, care about personal contact, avoidance of crowds, etc., will also apply on Frye Island, and we’ll determine what if any other measures might be prudent as we learn more and get closer to island opening.  As you may know, many jurisdictions have ordered public buildings, bars, restaurants and other public gathering places closed, and we will have some decisions to make about Frye Island activities and venues (Café, Lounge, Recreation, etc.) as the situation develops.  We’ll keep you up to date by email and the website.

Power Is Up

posted Nov 3, 2019, 2:07 PM by Bill Braun

Power has been restored to the whole island as of about 2:00 PM today.

Power Update

posted Nov 1, 2019, 3:37 PM by Bill Braun

Power was restored to most of the island at about 4:00 PM today.  The southeast portion (Ridge Road) remains out due to a tripped disconnect caused by a tree branch on the lines.  It’s difficult to determine exactly which homes are affected.  Besides a couple of downed services, that was the only electrical problem local to the island.  CMP is aware, but can’t predict when they will be able to come out because of the widespread damage.  The general outage on the island apparently originated on the mainland.  Predictably there a number of trees down on the island, but so far we have not seen any damage to cottages.   Most of the road obstructions have been removed.

Power Outage

posted Nov 1, 2019, 8:53 AM by Bill Braun   [ updated Nov 1, 2019, 9:13 AM by Dawn Taft ]

This is to let you know that power is out to all of Frye Island, as well as to our mainland ferry terminal, due to high winds.  The ferry is running.  So far issues local to the Island have been limited, but the winds remain high and the situation is still developing.  So far, there are a few trees and house service is down, and a branch has shorted power lines on Ridge Road, causing a local outage before power went out to the whole island.  I’ll try to provide updates as the developments occur.

POST OFFICE UPDATE
