The latest information we have.


We're following State and County guidance for preventing the spread of COVID-19 in our community, focused on the following key principles:

  • Vaccination

  • Masks

  • Contact Tracing

  • Social Distancing

  • Plenty of Ventilation

  • Personal Hygiene

Updates for March 14th, 2022

On Saturday, March 12th, California's mandate for masking in K-12 schools and childcare settings expired. Further, both CDC Guidance and CDPH guidance for vaccination and mask requirements have recently been relaxed.


Combined with the precipitous drop in COVID-19 cases in Contra Costa County, and based on the feedback we received in the Member survey we sent out last week, we're relaxing our COVID-19 policies at the gym effective Monday, March 14th.


As of Monday, March 14th, masks are now optional for everyone at Bridges, including Team Bridges Athletes and Coaches. We will continue to require proof of vaccination for entry.

Wednesday, March 16th marks the two-year anniversary of the first shelter-in-place order (and our first gym closure). While we would like to acknowledge that we have learned a lot in the past two years, and while the pandemic may not be over yet, we are excited to be able to spend more time and energy teaching folks how to climb, and less time and energy enforcing public health policy. We will continue to monitor local health data & guidance, and update our policies if necessary.


We’d like to point out that you will continue to see masks in the gym, and that’s a-ok. Whether you’re masked or not, we ask that you continue to treat your fellow climbers (and our staff) with respect and kindness.
