All club games will restart that week with the exception of the Friday game which will restart on January 6. The requirement that all players must be fully vaccinated to play remains in effect. Fully vaccinated still is defined as two shots of the Modernar or Pfizer vaccine and one shot of the J&J. The wearing of masks is each players own decision. Have a very Merry Christmas and we will see you at the bridge table.

Covid Case In The Unit

Covid Case In The Unit

We have been notified that a bridge player who played at the Holiday Party Unit Championship game on December 5 and the club game on December 7th at the Bridge Center has tested positive for COVID-19 and is hospitalized.

If you played in that event, please follow the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) by notifying your healthcare provider about possible exposure and to seek medical advice.

We cannot release the private health information of our members, including the names of players who have tested positive for the virus. It is up to the discretion of the player to self-identify as being diagnosed with COVID-19. However, we do want you to be well informed, and you may have been exposed. 

Your health – and the health of your friends and family – is of primary concern. Please refer to the CDC for additional information regarding the pandemic.

The Unit 146 bridge community is a strong one, and we will get through this together.
Thank you, Peter Haglich, Unit President
