  1. I found out a roommate had covid-19 two months after moving in. The tenant does not follow any social distancing in the household and has an essential job. God knows what he brings back to household. Landlord says he cant do anything. Threat to me, and possibly the community.

    1. This sounds like a tense and bad situation. Does the roommate have a lease with you or a lease with the landlord. If the lease is with the landlord it is more problematic as the tenant needs to be violating the lease agreement ( not following rules or paying the rent etc.) If the lease is with you then you can ask the tenant to leave state that you are not compatible due his failure to follow social distancing recommendations and that you want him out. When is his lease up? Even though it is not fair you may want to consider moving. I would document the all the times that your roommate is not following social distancing protocols.

  2. This is the flyer going out to residents. We have had horrible issues with our management company. They have flat out lied to us including in emails I have. There are also photos of major safety issues with the elevator. I have had to call 911 for people trapped in the elevator. Many of us in the building including myself have a disability where the stairs are not an option. The City of Evanston is aware of the issue, I have requested multiple times they inspect with no action. I have heard they know but do nothing. We invite you to attend this meeting. Please reach out with any questions.
