What steps are being taken to ensure your staff is healthy?
All team members must perform a daily self-screening test following a CDC approved Question and Answer test, prior to reporting to work. If a team member does not pass the screening, they are not allowed to work. If team members are feeling ill, they will be sent home. We are continuing training on COVID-19 awareness and also advising of proper health etiquette, including limiting contact with their eyes, nose, and mouth, and hand hygiene. Staff is reminded that cleanliness starts with the simple act of proper hand hygiene. We are enforcing frequent hand washing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are unavailable and providing frequent breaks to wash stations and increased access to hand sanitizing stations.

- You are required to wear a mask in the clubhouse, if you are not fully vaccinated. Masks are not required on the golf course.
- While eating inside the clubhouse you may remove your mask once you are seated at a table.
Will golf staff be required to wear masks while working?
