March 31, 2020 Message from TWALA President Joe Perez
TWALA Members,
We hope that this email finds you and your family in good health during these uncertain times. With health and safety at the forefront, the Waters at Lake Anna (TWALA) wants to ensure we are doing all we can to protect all of our employees and our TWALA families. As the Novel Coronavirus or COVID-19 continues to spread throughout Virginia, we want to share some of the actions that Governor Ralph Northam is taking to help protect us all.
Governor Ralph Northam recently declared a state of emergency in the Commonwealth of Virginia in response to the continued spread of the novel coronavirus. Yesterday he issued a statewide Stay at Home order to protect the health and safety of Virginians and mitigate the spread of the coronavirus. The executive order takes effect immediately and will remain in place until June 10, 2020, unless amended or rescinded by a further executive order.  Listed below are links to the governors Executive Orders 55, 53 and press release.
In compliance with the governor’s orders, the Waters at Lake Anna HOA physical OFFICE IS CLOSED to TWALA members and the Public until June 10, 2020.  However, our property manager, Ms. Tara Hirshell will be available during office hours, 10 am to 2 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, via telephone at 540-894-0409 or via email at For additional HOA information please visit
