Masks Required in Foundation Buildings and No Guests Allowed
After careful consideration the Administration, Executive Offices and Executive Committee have decided to require masks when indoors in any Foundation building.  
     Knowing that even vaccinated residents can contract the Delta Strain of COVID-19, and hearing that another strain emanating from South America may even be a more contagious strain, we want to provide this pro-active measure for safety purposes.
     Foundation buildings remain open. We caution you to maintain social distancing and we will limit the capacity for indoor large events. Outdoor meetings and gatherings will not require masks. Guests will not be allowed in or at any HV buildings or facilities. 
     Decisions we make are based on both the science and medical data available to us locally, regionally and statewide and may change with little notice.
One of the Top 55+ Communities in the USA!
Heritage Village ranks high—number 11—in a recent study of the best 55+ communities in the United States. Coventry Direct, the insurance company, analyzed more than 2,600 such communities, numerically ranking them based on both amenities and community details. HV received a perfect score for amenities, 50 out of 50—one of only six communities to do so!
     In the amenities section, Coventry investigated access to Exercise and Wellness, Entertainment, and Outdoor Activities. Heritage Village blasted past most competitors, especially in Entertainment and Outdoor Activities.
     In the community details section, Coventry reviewed such details as the prices and affordability of homes, age limits, and security. Once again, the Village showed its stuff, powering its way into the top communities of this study.
     Out of the top 25 communities for 55+ on this list, Heritage Village is the ONLY one in the northeast and practically the only one not in the Sunbelt. For those who enjoy changing seasons, Heritage Village is number one.

The Town of Southbury has Experienced an Uptick in Confirmed Rabid Wildlife
Animal Control asks owners to make certain that all pets, indoor and outdoor, are up to date with their rabies vaccinations, and reminds owners to supervise their pets and be cautious about leaving them unattended outdoors. While walking outside or hiking, it is recommended you have a second person accompany you and to carry an air horn.
     Some common symptoms of rabies can be unprovoked aggression, difficulty walking, and excess salivation. If you or your pet have had contact with wildlife, call Southbury Animal Control and follow up with a healthcare provider and/or veterinarian.
    For further questions, or to report wildlife contact with a human or pet, please call Southbury Animal Control at 203-262-0613.
Living with Pets
We want to remind you to keep your pets indoors, unless you have them on a leash. Along with the beautiful wooded landscape that Heritage Village has to offer, there is also the risk of pets getting lost and the risk from natural wildlife. We also want to make sure that any resident who is not an animal lover is not bothered by any of our pets. One last reminder: Please remember to pick up after your pets and throw the bags away appropriately. Please do your part to keep your dearly loved pets safe and our beautiful village clean.
