A few weeks ago, the BRARA board prepared a plan for approval by Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation outlining the precautions and limitations that we planned to implement to allow access to the club station to resume on a limited basis. Although the county approved our plan, the recent and sudden rise in COVID-19 cases in the short time since our plan was submitted has given the board cause for alarm and caused us to reconsider our decision.
To ensure the safety of our members, we the full BRARA Board have decided to postpone our plans until the pandemic stabilizes in the state of Florida. We all feel very strongly that our club must not in any way, however small, add to the risk of spreading the virus. We will revisit and resume our plans as soon as we are confident that it is safe to do so.
In the interim, we hope that everyone is doing all they can to remain safe and healthy, and we look forward to being able to resume our normal activities once it is safe to do so.
