COVID 19 Acknowledgement of Risk

As a result of the COVID pandemic, the Club is taking precautions to ensure the safety of its members and to protect the Club. Everyone has a role to play to keep themselves and their fellow members safe. We are requiring that every member to take steps to self assess and to stay away from the Club if they are experiencing symptoms, have come into contact with anyone experiencing symptoms, or are required to self-isolate due to government regulation. Once at the Club, we are requiring all members take precautions, including social distancing and sanitizing. Masks are recommended.

Every member attends the Club at their own risk and every member can play an active role in mitigating that risk. If you have an increased risk, due to age and/or an underlying health condition, we recommend that you consider not attending the Club.
