State of MA COVID-19 Guidelines , https://www.mass.gov/info-details/covid-19-public-health-guidance-and-directives

Norco 2021 One-page Calendar has been published and can be downloaded to be printed. The detailed monthly/daily website calendar will be adding in 2021 details before Dec 25th.

Norco monthly meetings starting in April 2021 will be hybrid where you have the choice to be onsite on the lawn or  continue to participate with web-based teleconferencing. The details on how to join the meeting will be sent out to everyone by email and also listed in the WCL Norco section. However the timing of the WCL newsletter and USPS  may have the newsletter arriving later than the meeting date. Each remote participation meeting has a unique web URL and unique telephone number with an access code, so what works in one month will not work the next month. Must use the current month and day access details. (e.g., don’t use April’s URL and phone number for the May meeting…it will not work; use May’s meeting details for May).

Norco Clubhouse and Bar Operations Closed Until Further Notice; Rentals RSVPs can be made but are still subject to when clubhouse and bar can reopen pending State guidelines for bars. State current guidance is Phase 4. Rentals need to adhere to state guidelines for group size and distancing, both inside and outside.
