Current Conditions

Last update October 21
Updates are only made if anything changes.

As soon as government regulations allow us to open a service or an amenity, we are adding it and updating this page. Of course we are always doing so while taking into consideration the safety of members, visitors, and staff. As such, some of our procedures have been altered. Please see below for details.

For instant updates, follow Bare Oaks Status on Twitter.

Some of Our Safety Procedures
