Dear Tennis Lover:
As many of you may know, things are beginning to improve on the coronavirus front. Daily cases have come down and the infection rate has dropped significantly. We still have over 2,000 active cases in Ulster County (more than twice the number we had when we closed the club in early December), but we hope to see that number start coming down soon.
We are tentatively thinking of re-opening HVIT for singles play on or around Monday, March 1. To make the opening a reality, the total case load in Ulster and Dutchess counties would have to drop significantly. We would also want to be sure there is not an increase in the infection rate or caseloads due to yesterday’s Super Bowl festivities. Finally, we would want to be sure the more infectious variants have not gotten a foothold in our area.
We will be back in touch either way in the next couple of weeks.
Hope everyone is well and able to stay as safe as possible.
Our very best,
James and Matt
