COVID-19 Safety Plan for Canberra Bridge Club

The ACT Government requires businesses to have a comprehensive COVID-19 Safety Plan in order to recommence activities. The Safety Plan needs to be available to be produced on request by ACT compliance and enforcement officers. The Australian Bridge Federation has reminded clubs that if they do not follow government requirements, TBIB has said that they will not be covered by their insurance.

The Committee has drawn up CBC’s Safety Plan and a Checklist for players in order to ensure face-to-face bridge sessions are as safe as possible for everyone and to meet our responsibilities as a business and as an employer. The health and safety of our staff remain our highest priority.

That said, it is not possible to play bridge in the clubrooms in a way that completely removes all COVID-19 risks. For example, we can minimise the handling of boards and cards, but we cannot eliminate that handling. The Committee understands that some members will not want to play face-to-face bridge at this time given their personal situation and health issues. We urge all members to consider their own circumstances and decide what is best for them.

It is a condition entry for playing face-to-face sessions that all player have read our Safety Plan and Checklist.
