D25 Health and Safety Policy

District 25 plans all our tournaments with the health, safety and comfort of each player in mind. We provide spacious, well-ventilated and well-lit playing spaces. Our Safety Coordinator works to see that our protocols are effectively implemented at each tournament and that hand sanitizer and masks are available.  Our players are also an important part of our effort. 

Although we now welcome all bridge players to our events, we ask you to stay home if you exhibit any symptom of illness.  If you are playing and arrive at a table where your mask-wearing opponents ask you to please wear one at their table, we ask you comply without comment. We have masks readily available for that circumstance. Working together, we can return to enjoying the camaraderie, challenge and competition of this fascinating game.
