COVID-19 Updates

Operational & Amenity Update | May 14, 2020

 On May 8, the State of California modified its Stay at Home Orders as we enter into the first phase of “Stage Two”.

With these new modifications in place,  many of the Canyon Lake POA facilities and services are able to reopen under limited hours and recommended guidelines.
