A Message from the Commodore

Updated July 31, 2021

The covid-19 epidemic is far from over, but vaccination is having a big impact in New York.  On May 19 the state was able to issue more relaxed guidelines, but recently there has been an increase in the number of cases in our area and yesterday, the Tompkins County Health Department issued a new warning.

The department is encouraging everybody, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask while indoors around others, and has requested local organizations to ask their employees and patrons to wear masks.  These are recommendations, not requirements, but we can all help by wearing masks when indoors and especially at the restaurant and bar.

In summary, the current guidelines are:

  • Everybody is asked to wear a mask when indoors and around others.
  • If you are fully vaccinated (two weeks after final dose), you do not need to wear a mask or to practice social distancing when outdoors.
  • If you are not vaccinated, wear a mask and practice social distancing.

Our caterer, Luna, is following the Tompkins county guidelines carefully. You will notice that most of the restaurant staff are wearing bracelets to indicate that they are fully vaccinated.

See you on The Point.
