POST NEWSLETTER UPDATE
Around October 25, 2020, numerous patrons of the post became infected with COVID-19 - this included some Executive Board members. Myself, pursuant to discussions with Maria Sharland, the Bar Manager, decided to close the canteen and post immediately. The Health Department's recommendations were to close for two weeks, until approximately November 16, 2020, and do a thorough cleaning of the bar area.
Before we could consider re-opening, the State Governor issued an Emergency Order mandating the closure of the post, and all indoor eating & drinking establishments in the state until December 8, 2020.
I scheduled an Emergency Executive Board meeting on November 19, 2020 to address our handling of the post-closure, and to layout our new plans for re-opening.
The bar manager and certain staff members have been conducting a thorough cleaning of the entire building.
Discussions were held by the Executive Board, and the consensus was to conduct our next Post Meeting on Tuesday, December 8, 2020. The E-Board decided, tentatively, to resume business. This will happen, pending further considerations by the Governor.
I was also decided that no large parties, funerals, etc., will be allowed until further notice. Further functions will be decided upon at a later date.
Have a safe and enjoyable holiday season.
