Effective Immediately 7/13

Hello MBBC Family,

Today, Governor Newsom ordered gyms to close, so we will be closing the MBBC courts as of this afternoon.

The good news is that we will keep the pool and jacuzzi open with the continued reminders:
• We will continue the policy of NO GUESTS. All children MUST be accompanied by a parent (no nannies, grandparents, neighbors, etc.)
• Members should NOT enter MBBC if they know that they have been in contact with someone with COVID-19 within the last 14 days, or if they themselves have a fever, or currently exhibit any of the symptoms associated with COVID-19 (mild to severe respiratory illness with fever, cough and difficulty breathing, or other symptoms identified by the CDC).
• Members who have previously tested positive for COVID-19, or are otherwise in recovery from illness are asked NOT to come to MBBC until they have been symptom free, without medication, for at least five days, and at least ten days have passed since symptoms first appeared.
• Restrooms, handrails, door handles, lounge chairs/tables will be disinfected daily.
• Cleaning supplies & hand sanitizer will be available on a high-top table at the south side of the deck. We ask that you clean your area (lounge chairs, tables, umbrella handles) before and after usage. You are also welcome to disinfect any other areas you come into contact with. Clorox Cleanup needs to be sprayed and left on the surface for 30 seconds before wiping. Members are to bring their own gloves for cleaning purposes with Clorox Cleanup. These actions will help to protect others, not just your own family.
• We encourage everyone to be mindful of the footprint in which they sit or lounge, keeping family belongings together (including towels). Remember to maintain social distancing!
• The 18th street entrance will be the only access to the pool. No equipment should be shared.
Stay safe everyone.
—Yuko Kawasaki, President and the MBBC Board

PLEASE help our club be successful in the reopening of our pool by monitoring your time in the pool and adhering to social-distancing guidelines on the deck. We do have cameras on the pool and jacuzzi. While it is not the intent to keep 24/7 tabs on members to ensure that the rules of courtesy and community are followed. We will however review footage and issue fines if necessary. As a reminder, the lobby, lounge and courts remain closed.

We appreciate your cooperation and support.

MBBC Partial Reopening – Effective 5/15

We are excited to say that the city has approved us to re-open some outdoor areas of the Club!

Effective today, Friday May 15th:

  • The sport court and outdoor recreation areas will be open
  • The bathrooms will be open
  • The pool and jacuzzi remain closed
  • Except for the bathrooms, all other indoor areas will remain closed including the lobby, lounge, kitchen, and badminton courts

While we would love to open more, please understand that the above is not “our” decision, but specifically mandated by the City and County.  We hope the pool will be allowed to open next, but again that requires approval.

New Rules Until Further Notice:

  • Entrance to the Club will be by 18th Street only
  • Group gatherings are prohibited.
  • No guests are allowed.

Sport Court Protocols, per County:

  • Please wash/sanitize hands prior to arrival and upon leaving.
  • Face mask usage is required when indoors or in close contact with others.
  • Physical distancing of six (6) feet should be maintained at all times.
  • If other Members are waiting to use the court, please limit play to 30 minutes.
  • For racquet sports, only singles play is permitted.
  • Each player must bring their own racquet. No sharing equipment.
  • Each participant must bring their own birdies or balls.
  • Participants are permitted to handle only their own birdies and balls.  Balls must be uniquely marked so each player only touches their own equipment.
  • When returning another player’s birdie or ball, roll or hit it to them with your racquet without handling it in any way.
  • Bring your own water and hand sanitizer or disinfecting wipes to wash and sanitize hands frequently

Similar to the phases you have all seen in the news, we will open MBBC in phases also.   Rules and protocols will also change, based on government regulations.  We will update everyone as soon as we have new developments to share.

There are risks related to COVID-19 that may arise from access to Club property and use of Club facilities, and Members understand that they assume such risks by accessing Club property and using Club facilities.

No Member should enter MBBC if they are experiencing symptoms of respiratory illness, including fever or cough.

Thank you for your support and doing your part to keep our community safe and healthy.
