Dear Members and Guests,
The following is a forwarded message from GNB’s Sport & Recreation Branch
COVID-19 Restriction Updates
The initial guidance that was agreed upon with Public Health for competitions in regions at the yellow alert level was subsequently revised over the weekend (March 7th, 2021) and as a result, we have been asked to adjust the FAQs to meet the requirements of the Mandatory Order (para 1) The rationale provided for the additional restrictions relies mostly around the concern around having people from several regions traveling to another region for organized sport activity.
These changes include but are not limited to the following:
Changes to the directive for competitions are as follows and can be viewed at Q. 24 of the attached Frequently Asked Questions document or https://tinyurl.com/FAQC19
Sport competitions with less than 150 participants are allowed as follows and do not require GNB approval:
- Games/Competitions with one other team/group in a single day are allowed across zones provided each respective group practice together on a regular basis, or the game/competition is restricted to an intra-squad/club event.
- Tournaments and clinics with less than 150 participants are permitted but all participants in any tournament or clinic must reside within the health zone in which the event is to take place.
We are still in the “State of Emergency” declaration issued March 19, 2020, https://www2.gnb.ca/content/gnb/en/news/news_release.2020.03.0139.html
The following services will continue to operate at this time, with additional health and safety precautions in place:
Our maintenance staff are working on the golf course. They are observing all of the health and safety precautions including self-distancing (6ft/2m).
The following procedures remain in effect:
Until further notice, if you or any member of your household has travelled outside of Canada, you are required to stay away from the Hampton Golf Club property for a minimum of 14 days starting the day you get home. Any violation of this order will result in disciplinary action. This is your social responsibility to keep everyone safe during this pandemic. This new guidance applies to all Members and Staff.
DO NOT COME TO THE CLUB PROPERTY IF YOU ARE EXHIBITING SYMPTOMS. Reported symptoms include: fever, coughing, chills, persistent headaches, unexplained rash, difficulty breathing and/or pneumonia. Symptoms relate to that of the flu, common cold or worse. Anyone concerned that they may have been exposed to, or are experiencing symptoms of, COVID-19 should call their primary care provider, local public health office or 8-1-1 before heading to the hospital.
