Post #347 Re-Opening Rules/Guidelines

Post #347 will be re-opening in a phased approach, starting on Friday June 12, 2020.  We thank all of our dedicated members for their patience since our abrupt closing on March 14th and want to make sure this re-opening goes as smoothly as possible.  While we are excited to re-open, at the same time we don't want to create a situation where this insidious virus has a chance to be passed from one member to another.  Consequently, we are starting out in Phase 1 with a rather restrictive set of rules and guidelines.  As we all learn more about the behavior of our members, guests, and workers, and our ability to minimize the spread of the virus, we will adapt the rules and guidelines and enter into subsequent Phases of these re-opening rules and guidelines.  If anyone has any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please send an email to: or call the front desk during weekdays at (352) 750-2099.
