Update: November 16, 2020 - Red/Control Stage Update From The Board of Directors

Face Mask/Face Covering

  • Masks must be worn indoors at all times, by all Members and staff.

Our staff ensure that all Club visitors have a mask or face covering, that they have not been travelling internationally in the last 14 days, they have not been in contact with someone they believe to be COVID 19 positive in the last 14 days, or they themselves are not feeling ill or experiencing COVID 19 symptoms.
