7/2/20: Covid19 Policies


New Canaan Field Club

NCFC Covid Update


Dear Members, 

I want to update you on our policies regarding masks and social distancing as discussed at our most recent Board meeting that took place on Tuesday night. 

We are requiring that all members wear a mask inside any buildings, in line at the snack bar, or within close proximity of anyone not in your immediate family. They should be worn from the parking lot to your destination, such as the pool or a tennis court. They should also be worn if you are dropping off or picking up a child from tennis, camp or swim.

On social distancing: please adhere to social distancing not only for yourselves, but also for your children. For example, we are seeing many kids running up to the snack bar without a mask. I understand that it is hard to monitor children, so we will gently remind them they should go back and get a mask. This is to protect not only your family, but other members as well. 

Regarding out of state travel: if you are traveling to one of the 16 states for which Governor Lamont has issued a mandate, then you are required to quarantine for two weeks and not visit the Club.

We are trying to stay ahead of the curve and keep our Club safe. We appreciate your using your good judgment to adhere to these policies.

Regarding guests: we are still not allowing guests at this time. I have had numerous members ask about whether family members who are visiting and staying for a week or two or over the summer can come to the club.

We are adhering to the policy that if they are immediate family they can come with you as a guest and pay the appropriate fee. Please be aware if they are from one of these 16 states on the quarantine list the quarantine period is still in effect.

Nanny and Babysitter Policy: we will allow nannies and babysitters on the property but they must check in with Tom, Joe or Tim’s staff to register that they are caring for a child.

We are instructing the staff to wear masks when within six feet of anyone. In the case of Tennis, we will ask the pros to wear a mask if in close proximity of a group. If a lesson, a team practice, or a power clinic is taking place, a mask does not have to be worn.

We may all somewhat guilty of being a bit lax right now but we should all be aware that it is absolutely necessary to wear a mask in a group setting.

Thanks for your understanding. This year has been a challenging one for the Board, Staff and myself, and appreciate everyone’s kind words and any suggestions that we can incorporate into the functioning of the Club in a safe way.

I am here for any questions.


Mike Simko, President
