Level 2 Lock-down - February thru March 2021

The Hamilton Bridge Club has returned to Level 2 Lock-down. The Government last night announced a week long Level 2 lock-down for New Zealand excluding Auckland which is now at Level 3.

NZ bridge has previously advised that Bridge clubs can play at Lock-down Level 2 if they choose with certain safety standards.

The Club is continuing with these rules that applied during the last Level 2 Lock-down in in early February 2020 and these will be in effect for the next seven days - Sunday 28th thru the end of Saturday 6th March

Obviously, it is an individual decision whether you wish to play in Level 2 and the Club understands that

Face masks - Many members have their own face masks and if you do please bring them should you decide to play. The club however does have a limited number of disposal ones available and will seek more tomorrow

At the current Level 2 our safety precautions are the following:
•    If you come to bridge you must be well and have no symptoms of any illness
•   The use of face masks is mandatory.
•   The kitchen will be closed
•   You bring your own pen that travels with you
•   Only South will handle the Bridge Mate. East will verbally agree to the score

If we find that insufficient numbers decide to play at the current Level 2, we will close again until Lock-down Level 1

There will be further communication from us on the club website after the next Government announcement that changes the current status
