Dear Members: 

As the pandemic situation remains fluid and volatile and in order to have the best opportunity for our businesses to stay operational, we must all follow the  most stringent protocols that can be implemented. We must continue to show utmost responsibility and be proactive at finding continued ways at keeping our patrons, staff, and ourselves safe. Please use the following resources as reference and adhere to all messaging that is coming from the CDC and WHO:
 

1. Avoid close contact with people who are sick;

2. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth;

3. Stay home when you are sick; notify your supervisor immediately if not feeling well

4. Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue;

5. Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces; 

6. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds;

7. Visit www.cdc.gov/COVID19 for more information.

* Some items that can be done in your operation are to implement enhanced cleaning procedures making sure to thoroughly wash each piece of equipment and hand tools-making extra effort  to sanitize steering wheels, handles, control levers, work benches etc.....anywhere hands frequently come into contact with hard surfaces. It has become normal to remove ballwashers, sand bottles, rakes, and even flagsticks during this time. The practice of "social distancing" has become commonplace and is an integral part to the CDCs recommendations.

Many clubs are implementing some of the following:

Staggering employee start times to avoid masses of people in one location

Not meeting inside in the mornings, but rather outside in an open environment

Designating lunch times (staggered)

Assign individual pieces of equipment

Discontinue staff meals that are serving buffet-style, discontinue use of "community" coffee/tea/soda fountains, individually wrap meals if provided

These are just a few recommendations.

Thank you for your continued support of the LMGCSA. Please stay safe!
