Dear Valued Members,

The University Club continues to closely monitor the unfolding situation around the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and
the Club follows the updates provided by McMaster University and government advisors

. After much consideration we have made the difficult decision to close the Club as of 3:00 pm Monday , March 16th, until further notice.
The safety of our Members, Guests and Staff remains our top priority. In light of the challenges we are facing due to the COVID-19 virus,
we trust this is the best decision at this time.

Although we are not aware of any presumptive or confirmed cases of COVID-19 among our Members, Guests or Staff, 
we feel that we should align with recommendations from McMaster University and from the many government advisors.

All required maintenance will continue throughout the closure to ensure that our facilities and equipment remain safe and readied for reopening. We will continue to monitor new information and will regularly communicate with our Members and Staff as we look forward to reopening as soon as possible.

Updates will also be posted to web site -

As always, our priority is to maintain a safe and healthy environment for our Members, Guests and Staff as well as the wider community in which we operate. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these unprecedented times.
