Please see this attached Phased Re-opening Plan that the Board is currently following.

BCYC_Phased Re-Opening Plan_06July2020_DRAFT.pdf

We are currently in Phase 2 although the Board has the option of moving to Phase 3 or going back to Phase 1 as the current Covid-19 situation changes.

As always, the clubhouse and property is still open for use by members but again, this is at your own risk. Regularly scheduled weekly cleanings of the clubhouse are still occurring.


Under current social distancing rules, it is advised, that while at the club, that you follow these guidelines:

  • Please be mindful of others and be respectful of social distancing rules
  • Please maintain at least 6-feet of space when interacting with other members
  • No gatherings of more than 10 people (who must still follow social distancing rules above)
  • Wash your hands often and wear a mask
  • Take every precaution; it is possible to spread the virus days before symptoms appear
  • Please clean and sanitize after yourself to help protect your fellow club members
  • Please be prepared! While there is a supply of toilet paper, paper towels, hand soap, and hand sanitizer, please be aware that procuring these supplies has become difficult and there is a strong possibility that BCYC may run out at some point
