Chess may have to wait until the social distancing is lifted as players at the board will not be the required 6 feet apart. This, of course, means that all chess after school programs and over the board tournaments are cancelled as well. The Monday night adult club is also closed until further notice. Check with your chess coach for concerns about private lessons.
