COVID-19: Club Closure

Dear Members, 

On Friday morning the Membership received communication from the Club, which included a letter from Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) regarding possible exposure of COVID-19 at the Club between October 1st and October 6th.

Today, you received a letter from our Club President, Carol Fraser, outlining a need for all Members to be more vigilant in following COVID-19 protocol.

VCH has continued to do contact tracing based on cases they have confirmed being related back to exposure at Hollyburn. As a result of the contact tracing, we just received word from the Medical Health Officer that Hollyburn is required to close, effectively immediately.

Based on this advice and direction from Vancouver Coastal Heath, the Club will be closing immediately as of 6pm, Saturday, October 10th until further notice.

During this closure we will be doing rigorous cleaning of all all Club areas and working with VCH to get more information. As more information becomes available we will be immediately passing it along to the Membership.

As a reminder, if you were at the Club between Oct 1st and Oct 6th, you are advised to self monitor for any COVID-19 symptoms until October 20th, 2020. This possible exposure does NOT mean you are infected with COVID-19. Please click here to read our FAQ which may help answer some of your questions.

The safety of our Members and staff is our number one priority and we will continue to operate in a cautious manner and follow VCH's recommendations as we work through these COVID-19 challenges.

If you have questions or concerns about the virus, please call VCH directly. If you have any questions about the Club please use the "You Speak, We Listen" feature on your Hollyburn App or contact me directly at emclaughlin@hollyburn.org.
Ed McLaughlin
CEO, Hollyburn Country Club

As a reminder, Members who are showing symptoms of COVID-19 are not permitted at the Club. If you have tested positive yourself and have been at the Club please let Management know immediately. We appreciate everyone's patience as we navigate this situation.
