EBU Covid-19 Update: Updated Rules on Face Coverings
December 9, 2021

In light of the recent update from the UK Government (8th Dec) we would recommend that clubs playing face-to-face follow these guidelines:

The government has announced that England will move to Plan B in response to the risks of the Omicron variant.

From Friday 10 December the public, and staff in public facing areas, are required to wear face coverings in these additional settings: Community centres (including village halls), youth centres, members clubs and social clubs.

Also, the Club requests that members use the Hand Sanitizers provided and especially when entering the Club

Health and Safety

Due to Coronavirus, the following will apply to all F2F events held in the Club for the foreseeable future:

Face Masks - although we expect that all attendees will have been fully vaccinated, the wearing of face masks is now required.
So, in order to play at the Club,  the wearing of a face covering is compulsory, in line with Government directives.

Hand Sanitisers - These will be available on each table and on entry to the Club.

Bridgemates - At the table, only the scorer will handle the Bridgemate handset – showing the score entered to the opponents.

Bidding Boxes - Members are advised to keep the same bidding box when moving from table to table

Bridge Movement - Whenever possible the bridge movement will minimise moving around the Club e.g., Mitchell movement.

Ventilation - Windows and doors will be kept open and so we advise members to sit away from potential draughty areas if they are sensitive to the cold.

Refreshments - Drinks will be available from the serving hatch but we will require members to avoid bunching together and so we will allow time to accommodate this.

Table Money - Payment is taken safely and hygienically using a credit or debit card online or at the Club

Members can bring their own drinks and bidding boxes.
