Newest update June 12 2020 (Gym added at the bottom)

Dear NBTC Members,
It’s been great seeing all of you enjoying tennis and swimming here at the club. We are pleased to report that the County of Orange has authorized certain businesses like ours to extend the reopening to offer additional member services and amenities. The most significant impact for NBTC is to permit inside-dining under conditions that help to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
As we move forward, its imperative that we all practice social distancing while on club grounds, by maintaining 6 feet separation and by avoiding moving tables or chairs together to form groups. Please find the highlighted changes below.
It’s good to be back!

Before reopening, all businesses were requested to complete the following actions, which NBTC has now completed:
1. Perform a detailed risk assessment and implement a specific protection plan.
2. Train employees on how to limit the spread of COVID-19, including how to screen themselves for symptoms and stay home if they have them.
3. Implement individual control measures and screenings.
4. Implement disinfecting protocols.
5. Implement physical distancing guidance
