HOA COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT
The state notified the County that it will be allowed to lift some COVID-19 restrictions starting Wed. 3/17 and move from the most restrictive Purple Tier into the less restrictive Red Tier. The change in tiers will allow restaurants, gyms, movie theaters and other businesses to begin moving operations indoors with capacity limits.
Restaurants and movie theaters will be allowed to resume indoor operations at 25 percent capacity, or 100 people, whichever is fewer. Gyms and fitness centers will be allowed to reopen indoor operations at 10 percent of their indoor capacity. Museums, zoos and aquariums will be able to open indoor operations at 25 percent capacity and retail and shopping centers will be able to increase their indoor operations to 50% capacity. All establishments will still be required to follow social distancing and face covering guidelines for their employees and patrons.
Candlelight Hills HOA still strongly suggests wearing masks and distancing when coming in contact with other residents and keeping your social gatherings to small groups. Approval to use parks for group gatherings is still required. We’re not out of the woods yet! Be smart, stay safe.
“It is because of the efforts of our community that the County is able to move back into the Red Tier after four months of Purple Tier restrictions,” said Wilma J. Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “However, the relaxing of restrictions should not encourage San Diegans to let their guard down. We are urging community members to continue to do their part, get vaccinated once they are eligible and take the necessary precautions to avoid getting and spreading COVID-19.”
NOTE: Valuable information can be found on the Candlelight Hills bulletin board.

Candlelight Hills Highlights
A small gated community located in the city of Escondido which has around 150,000 residents and is one of San Diego’s oldest, incorporated 1888, suburban communities. Candlelight Hills is nestled between Highway 78 and I-15 in the highly regarded southwestern portion of the City of Escondido. This setting allows for quick access via I-15 into Downtown San Diego or via Highway 78 for easy access to the coast as well as the other north county communities of San Marcos, Vista and Oceanside. While conveniences abound within a few minutes drive the best part is that once you enter the 71 home Candlelight Hills community the world changes to one of tranquility and quiet. Many of the homes have views to Bernardo Mountain, Daley Ranch, Mt San Marcos, Mt Israel or even the Palomar Mountain range while other sites feature tree lined pathways or wooded slopes. Houses are landscaped and placed on lots so that yards generally don’t look out onto your neighbors yard.
A couple of miles of trails are incorporated through approximately 22 acres of open space within this gated HOA. Two parks, each with gazebos, tables and benches to kick back and observe a volleyball game or watch the children at play are a primary asset. A third park like area with another gazebo sits alongside the horseshoe pit and basketball facility. A lighted Tennis and Pickleball Court complex round out the amenities for residents and guests to enjoy. A wide variety of major grocery chains including Albertsons, Aldi, Major Market, Jimbos, Sprouts, Trader Joe’s, and Vons are all less than 5 minutes drive without having to get onto a freeway. A Rite Aid, Walgreen’s and two CVS pharmacies are also scattered between these grocery outlets.
Various restaurants and shops abound in these local shopping center areas along with major retailers including Home Depot, Staples, Target, Dick’s Sporting Goods and a Beverages & More. The California Center for the Arts, Escondido, San Diego Zoo Safari Park, Westfield North County Mall, Lake Hodges along with Daley Ranch and Lake Dixon can all be accessed via numerous corridors allowing quick and easy access to almost everything including the new Palomar hospital.
