It seems my comments about a cautious approach to a return to F2F bridge last month may have been quite prescient, given the surge in cases of the ‘Indian Variant’. Ongoing monitoring of the national and international situation is the key.
It also seems that any bridge movement of players around a room with the intention of holding some sort of meaningful duplicate bridge session will not be in accordance with the current ‘Rule of Six’ Regulations. Even if not a legally enforceable provision, this could still provide difficulties in providing insurance cover for club officials and officers in the event that we went ahead with bridge sessions, even with the use of protection such as plastic screens, disciplined movement in the room, etc.
So, we will wait to see what change to the Regulations might be announced later in June. Michael Allen 851870
