Club Office and Clubhouse Closes in Response to COVID-19 Pandemic

New Jersey reported over 4,000 Covid-19 positive test results on November 16, 2020. Compare that number – 4,000 – to July’s numbers of less than 400 per day. This pandemic is surging and extraordinary measures are needed. These are figures from November 15:

  • 2,115 total hospitalizations
  • 417 in critical or intensive care
  • 137 ventilators in use

Governor Murphy’s Executive Order issued November 16, 2020, further restricted indoor gatherings to not more than ten. Continued guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention emphatically states that when indoors with those with whom you do not live, the wearing of masks at all times and maintaining social distancing of at least six feet must be required. However, the overarching guidance issued by public health and government authorities, repeated constantly especially now in advance of the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, is clear: DO NOT TAKE ANY UNNECESSARY RISK OF EXPOSURE.

What does this guidance mean? Spend time indoors ONLY with those with whom you live. With that simple guidance in mind, the Club Office and Clubhouse are being closed to members and the general public indefinitely.

Effective Wednesday, November 18, 2020, NO ACCESS is being permitted to any portion of the Clubhouse and Club Office, all scheduled meetings and activities are canceled. The Club Office will continue to operate, Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 4 pm, though the Office will be closed on Saturdays.
The Club is not entering into new contracts for Family Event rentals, though please feel free to call to “hold” the date for any Family Event planned to take place after Labor Day 2021.

The Club continues to evaluate COVID-19 guidance. We will continue to closely monitor news and updates from relevant health organizations and government regulators, and will share all relevant information as necessary. Thank you for your understanding.
