Current COVID Protocols - See separate section below for complete details

Revised COVID-19 Protocols (March 7th 2022)

The Executive Committee of the Harrisburg Bridge Club Board of Governors is revising the club's COVID-19 protocols to be consistent with recently issued CDC guidance as well as newly published ACBL COVID tournament policies. The following protocols are effective for all Face to Face (F2F) club games as of March 7th 2022 (including the upcoming March 18/19 Sectional):

* All players who participate in F2F games at the club must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Fully vaccinated means that you have received two doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson version. COVID boosters are highly recommended but not mandated for F2F play

* You will need to provide proof of vaccination the first time you play at the club, either by showing your vaccination card or a digital copy on your phone. For those of you who have already done so, there is no need to do it again as we have recorded your information.

* Fully vaccinated players may now play without a face mask, although masks are still recommended for participants who are at high risk for severe illness. Disposable masks and hand sanitizer will be available at the club.

In addition, we ask that attendees be courteous and put on a mask if seated at a table with a high-risk player who requests that tablemates wear masks. We also request that you not come to the club if you have a cough, fever, or another symptom of an infectious illness.  

These protocol changes are being made since the rate of COVID transmission in Cumberland and surrounding counties has decreased considerably over the past few weeks. We appreciate your continued support as we work hard to determine the best policies for offering F2F bridge opportunities while also protecting the health and safety of our members.
