CLUB is now OPEN for all sessions EXCEPT WED EVENING

The committee of Orange Bridge Club met  and after a lengthy discussion decided to reopen the club to competitive play as from Monday 31 August 2020. The committee felt that the COVID situation in NSW had changed dramatically since their last meeting and now was the appropriate time to reopen the club.

Initially we are planning to operate on Monday afternoons and Friday mornings. If we progress successfully we will examine Wednesday morning, evening and Saturday if the COVID situation remains under control.

In arriving at this decision the committee considered the following:

  • There are no current COVID cases in the Western Health Area and this situation has existed for some time
  • There are very few active COVID cases in NSW all confined to Sydney and the risk factor of reopening the club is very low
  • The Victorian border is closed where there are a large number of cases
  • There are a number of people who rely on bridge as a social activity
  • Provided we have a COVID safety plan in place we do not have a legal problem
  • Bathurst and Dubbo Clubs have reopened and are enjoying competitive bridge
