While we are excited to bring players back together to the bridge table, we will still approach the tournament with caution. All NABC attendees, staff and volunteers must be fully vaccinated as per the Centers for Disease Control guidelines. While booster shots are currently not required, they are highly recommended.
Mask protocol update
Effective March 1, 2022, The ACBL will require masking of players, staff and volunteers when the COVID-19 Community Level rate is indicated as “High,” and will not require masks when the Community Level rate is indicated as “Low” or “Medium.” This will be reviewed on a daily basis for the Summer NABC using the Community Level county check system. Players at the NABC will receive updates in the Daily Bulletin notifying them of that day’s status, and signage will be posted throughout tournament areas each morning.
Attendees should be prepared by bringing masks to the tournament playing areas in the event the Community Level rate changes to “High.” Masks are still recommended for attendees who are at high risk for severe illness or otherwise are a member of a vulnerable population. We also ask attendees to be courteous and wear a mask if seated at a table with a high-risk player who asks for tablemates to wear masks.
Additionally, all monetary transactions will be cashless, including tournament fees.
