COVID-19 Announcement

Good News Everyone.

The Clubhouse can now be reopened with restrictions. As you may or may not know as of February 16, 2021 the Ontario Government is allowing the gradual reopening of some regions in Ontario. Though Durham is currently in the RED Zone we are allowed to have indoor gathering of up to ten and outdoor gatherings of up to twenty five. We are still required to wear masks and keep our distance from people not living in the same household.

Please continue to do your best in stopping this virus by "Always stay home if you have symptoms, physically distance by staying two metres apart from people you don’t live with, wear a mask or face covering in indoor public spaces and avoid non-essential travel." Thanks for all your efforts and hope that we get to have a full sailing season this year. Keep up the good work. Stay Safe and Healthy. See you soon.

We have done a great job in the Durham region to minimize exposure to COVID-19. Unfortunately, the rest of the province did not fair as well and the Provincial Government has issued the second State of Emergency effective Thursday, January 14, 2021.

"Effective Thursday, January 14, 2021at 12:01 a.m., the government is issuing a stay-at-home order requiring everyone to remain at home with exceptions for permitted purposes or activities, such as going to the grocery store or pharmacy, accessing health care services, for exercise or for work where the work cannot be done remotely."

Also, as per the state of emergency effective immediately

"Outdoor organized public gatherings and social gatherings are further restricted to a limit of five people with limited exceptions. This is consistent with the rules during the lockdown during the first wave of COVID-19 in spring 2020 and will allow individuals and families to enjoy time outdoors safely.

Individuals are required to wear a mask or face-covering in the indoor areas of businesses or organizations that are open. Wearing a mask or face covering is now recommended outdoors when you can't physically distance more than two meters.

All non-essential retail stores, including hardware stores, alcohol retailers, and those offering curbside pickup or delivery, must open no earlier than 7 a.m. and close no later than 8 p.m. The restricted hours of operation do not apply to stores that primarily sell food, pharmacies, gas stations, convenience stores, and restaurants for takeout or delivery.

Non-essential construction is further restricted, including below-grade construction, exempting survey."

In regards to the clubhouse, we are only to go to the clubhouse for emergency or mandatory maintenance, safety, and security situations only until this State of Emergency is lifted.

I will update you further if there are any additional restrictions required of us.

Please continue to Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, and we will see you in the Spring.

We must still practice social and physical distancing, proper washing etiquette, keeping surfaces and objects clean and cough in your elbow.
