Covid-19 Policy

We are fortunate to have had very few reports of members contracting coronavirus. That this is so is almost certainly down to members being double vaccinated and observing the guidelines set out below.

If you wish to play at Sheffield Bridge Club, please ensure that you have had either both Covid-19 vaccinations or a negative Lateral Flow Test, on the day you are playing, to ensure you are free from coronavirus. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, or indeed, any other respiratory infection please do not attend the club until you have recovered. 

In line with governmental guidance there will be no requirement to wear face masks and it will be left to individual members to follow their own preferences and make their own decision whether to attend the club bearing this in mind.

Please note that windows and possibly doors will be open to improve ventilation within the building. Please bear this in mind when choosing your bridge-playing ensemble.

Air purifiers are in operation at the club to provide additional ventilation to the playing areas and kill virus particles.

If a player is unfortunate enough to have a positive Covid-19 test they should advise a committee member as soon as possible so that other members can be notified along with details of the session they attended. The affected person’s name will not be divulged without their express permission.

If you attended such a session please take the following action:

    • Check your Covid status by performing a lateral flow test or having a PCR test.

    • If this is positive please inform a member of the committee.

    • Do not attend the club again until you have received a negative Covid test.    

Please ensure that you follow these guidelines for the safety and well-being of all members.

Thank you.

 

Playing Bridge online

Whilst the club has now re-opened, there is still opportunity to play bridge online as an alternative to (or hopefully in addition to) playing face-to-face at the bridge club. 

Bridge Club Live

Bridge Club Live -  https://www.bridgeclublive.com/ 

You play with real people and it is UK based so plenty of Acol/weak No Trump (though all are welcome).

About 120 Sheffield BC members are now playing as members in Bridge Club Live.

 

Bridge Base Online

Bridge Base Online -  https://www.bridgebase.com/ - is the largest online bridge platform for real-time bridge.
