November Update

Good afternoon,

Last week we informed the membership that one of our members had tested positive for Covid 19 that had been to the club on October 23 & 24. We shut down operations for 2 days so the building could be cleaned & sanitized, and our volunteers & staff could be tested. One of our volunteers, Kathy Hegarty, tested positive on Sunday, November 1st, and Mike Cashman tested positive on November 3rd.

We contacted the board of health to inform them and ask for guidance.

Anyone having close contact with Kathy or Mike at the Club or elsewhere on or after the weekend of October 23 & 24 may want to consider self quarantining or getting a Covid test. (www.mass.gov Covid protocol defines close contact as living with / caring for a Covid 19 positive person or coming within 6 feet of a positive person for a period of 15 minutes or more).

The club will be open for business as usual but our Sunday membership meeting will be cancelled to control indoor gathering numbers . Please continue to be safe and maintain social distancing and mask wearing practices.

In addition, all members entering the club will be required to sign in with their name, membership number and phone number to facilitate contact tracing. We need all members cooperation to minimize risk and to be able to keep the club open. Thanks for your support.

Covid-19 Club Rules

On August 11, 2020, Governor Baker made it mandatory for anyone ordering an alcoholic beverage to also order food to go with it. This food must be made on the premises and snacks do not fulfill the obligation. Snacks may be brought in but food must also be ordered. In an effort to keep prices down we are now offering subsidized sandwiches, calzone slices, pasta salad, etc. These will be available and must be ordered whenever the kitchen is closed through the bartender. When the kitchen is open, Thursday-Saturday (4;30-7:30), the subsidized food will not be available. All food orders must be placed by calling into the takeout number (508-790-0399). Takeout may be eaten inside at a table while respecting the 6-foot space required by the restrictions. When finished, please place your trash in the garbage bins and wipe down your table with sanitizer as provided by the Club. Thank you for your cooperation and support!!

  1. All members must wear a face mask to enter the club. THIS IS MANDATORY. You shall only be allowed to remove your face mask when you are seated, otherwise, whenever you are not seated, you must wear a face mask.

2. Do not come to the club, if you have been in contact with someone who has been infected with COVID 19 or you do not feel
well.

3. There will be hosts at the front door to monitor mask use and assist in finding a table. We are not taking reservations, first
come first served. Please show some respect to the hosts, as they are volunteers!
