Subject: Senior Activity Center facility users - Mask Optional

As the NH Department of Health and Human Services continues to report an increase in cases, hospitalizations and positivity rates of COVID-19, the City is recommending masks inside City facilities, which includes the senior center….we do not require masks but encourage their use.

Discussion starts ~ 9:45 before every game
About our post-pandemic re-opening:
  • All players must be FULLY vaccinated
    Each person must present proof of vaccination, and two weeks passed since the final shot. Players that do not provide proof will not be permitted to play or kibitz. You only need to present proof of vaccination once to play regularly in our games.
  • Portsmouth Senior Activity Center recommends you to wear a mask.
  • We will have bottles of hand sanitizer located around the playing area.
  • Snacks and refreshments will be available. We will also break for lunch. 
  • Any person feeling ill is expected to stay home. Any person exhibiting Covid-like symptoms will be asked to leave with game fee refunded. Any person later testing positive for Covid-19 is expected to notify the Club of such with the date of the test.
  • The Club will not attempt to sterilize the actual playing cards due to the sheer impracticality of the task. 

Parking is available on either side of the Senior Activity Center. Please enter the building through the front door. The Director is our normal standby as a fill-in partner. However, when the game gets very large we cannot guarantee a partner since the ACBL prohibits a playing director for certain special games or games with 16+ tables. Come early for the best chance of securing a partner, or call one of the contacts listed below two days before the game:
