COVID : Cautious and Considerate
The GC would like members to feel able to come to the club so please:
- Stay at home if you are unwell
- Continue to utilise the outdoor space if possible and to ensure good ventilation indoors at all times
- Bring a face covering for use indoors
On 10th December 2021 the government announced that England will move to Plan B in response to the risks of the Omicron variant and the guidance on face coverings was updated. Face coverings must now be worn inside members clubs by law, unless you are exempt or have a reasonable excuse. The updated government guidance on face coverings can be found here
The GC have agreed that only members sat down drinking or eating may remove face coverings inside the clubhouse. Measures are also being put in place to improve distancing from the bar, please do not congregate around the bar. Members are asked to respect these arrangements!
When outside, members are reminded to continue to respect personal space as some people may not be comfortable being close to others even with a face covering.
Please continue to be cautious and considerate of others in all your activities.
