LIYC Covid-19

As the long-awaited opening of the outdoor bar, dining patio, and the pool open on 6/12/2020,  we would like to take a moment and thank each of you for your patience, and your support during these most trying times. Given the tragedies before us this year with thousands of deaths from COVID-19 and the social unrest of today, we strive here at the  LIYC to offer a welcoming community, a respite from life's daily stresses, for all to enjoy. The LIYC family eagerly awaits this Friday's kick-off with the opening of the pool, live entertainment on the lower Patio, and alfresco dining on the upper Patio. Ms. Diane, Chef Matt, and their staff have prepared an excellent menu for your enjoyment(click here!); we encourage members to socialize responsibly while enjoying the beautiful club we all care so much for.

Rest assured, while on the property,  we have taken every precaution to mitigate the risks posed by the Covid-19 virus. The facility has been prepared based on current CDC guidelines. All tables, chairs & lounge areas are spaced no less than 6’ apart with a maximum capacity of 10 persons per table. For your convenience, hand sanitizing stations are located at the pool entrance, the snack shack window, the outdoor bar, the upper & lower patios as well as the outdoor bathrooms. As a reminder, social distancing signage is displayed throughout the facility. A protocol for ongoing cleaning and disinfection of high-risk areas and daily sanitization of tables, chairs, and loungers is in place. All staff has been trained in Covid-19 best practices and will utilize proper PPE.

We ask all members to wear face coverings within the common areas of the club and while ordering from the bar or the snack bar. Face coverings are not required while seated with your party, or while in open areas which allow for the proper distancing of 6'. Although we acknowledge social distancing and PPE are individual choices, and we can not enforce responsible behavior,  we respectfully ask that all members respect the LIYC community and do their part. Social distancing and PPE works!

For dinner service, reservations are strongly recommended regardless of party size. Every attempt will be made to accommodate walk-ups, but seating will be limited, and we do not want to disappoint. Given current guidelines, all parties must check in with our Hostess to ensure your table has been adequately cleaned & sanitized before you are seated. Party sizes have been limited to a maximum of 10 individuals per table. All menus, plates, cutlery, cups, etc. will be eco-friendly, sustainable single-use items (We finally found a use for all that bamboo!) At the Outdoor bar, we have created four ordering lanes that are spaced 6’ apart.  We ask for face coverings to be worn while ordering, otherwise please feel free to relax, enjoy dinner & drinks with family and friends.

Pool deck loungers have been spaced 6' apart. It is permissible to pull lounge chairs closer together within members of your own party; please limit groupings to no more than ten people. Face coverings are not required while sunbathing provided 6' distancing is maintained between groupings. Face coverings are encouraged in common areas or where 6' distancing is not feasible. Face coverings are not required or encouraged while swimming. Lifeguards will not be wearing face coverings, if you need to speak with a lifeguard, please maintain 6' distancing. If you prefer to bring your own chair or sunshade, please feel free to do so!

At this time, the Clubhouse will remain closed and we are not permitted to have the outdoor bar stools or couches available for use. We have provided extra tables for your convenience. Currently, our playground must remain closed, and our lawn games stowed away, as they pose a hard surface contact risk.

Again, THANK YOU!  Thank you to all of our Members for your continued support and commitment to the LIYC. We wouldn’t be here without you. Let’s continue to do our part so we enjoy a full Summer of fun with friends, family, and the LIYC community.
