Dear Valued Members:

Following the favorable opinion we received from the Office of the City of Makati regarding IATF Resolution 38 and Executive Order 11 s. 2020, we are pleased to inform you that the Club’s outdoor non-contact sports facilities such as tennis court, squash court, badminton court, and swimming pool area will be opened to all members and their dependents for limited basic operation only starting June 12, 2020.

Thus, members and dependents including those who are sixty years old and above, below twenty- one years old, with immunodeficiency, comorbidities and other health risk and pregnant women, including those who reside with the aforementioned are hereby allowed to engage in the foregoing outdoor activities, provided that they observe the strict public health standards imposed by the IATF and the Club.

Dear Valued Members:

We are pleased to inform you that we will resume the operations of the club's Barber Shop and Beauty Parlor effective June 11, 2020.

Please see below for the safety protocols and guidelines before availing of the barber shop's and beauty parlor's services.

However, the Executive Order 11 of the City Government of Makati states that persons who are 60 years old and above and 21 years old and below must remain in their residences in areas under the General Community Quarantine. For this reason, the Management will be constrained not to allow members who fall under said category from entering the Club for the time being.

We have already sent a letter to the office of Makati Mayor seeking clarification on EO 11.

We will immediately advise members of the official response which is expected to be released soon.

Dear Valued Stockholders and Members:

I write on behalf of the members of the Club Board of Directors.

Notwithstanding the declaration placing Metro Manila under General Community Quarantine (GCQ) from 01 June 2020 to 15 June 2020, freedom of movement and mass gatherings are still prohibited and/or restricted under the IATF Omnibus Guidelines on the Implementation of Community Quarantine in the Philippines and Executive Order No. 11 of the Makati City Government.

In the press briefing last 04 June 2020, Malacañang—citing the latest IATF resolution on the matter—stressed that even in places under the Modified General Community Quarantine (MGCQ), persons who are 60 years old and above or below 21 years old, those who have comorbidities, and pregnant women are still not allowed to leave their homes except for essential errands and/or work-related travel.

With due regard for the health and safety of the members of the Club who fall under the above classes of persons, and to fully comply with the directives of the government, the Board of Directors has decided to postpone the Annual Stockholders Meeting previously scheduled on 15 June 2020 to a later date. The dates for the submission and validation of proxies will likewise be extended.

As mentioned in our last notice, we are studying the possibility of holding an online meeting as one of our options. We will update you as soon as possible.

Thank you for your understanding and support.

Sincerely,

DATE-28-MAR

Dear Valued Members,

We recognize that the difficult circumstances brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic are preventing members to settle their bills.

In view of this extraordinary situation, the Board has decided to extend the payment deadline for your February billing statement until 30 April 2020.

Furthermore, the consumables and other fees collected in advance for the gym, pool, etc. will be extended one month after Club operations resume.

In this regard, we wish to advise you that collection of payments will proceed as usual to keep the Club functioning and our employees duly compensated.

You may get in touch with the Membership and Billing Offices at 8-8178731 to 39, local 447 or 223, for further inquiries after the quarantine period is over.

We also take this opportunity to inform you that the Board and the Management have already given financial assistance to MSCI employees and staff who are in need of additional remuneration to help them cope with the ongoing crisis.

Moreover, we have started to implement a recent initiative of the Board to provide packed meals to the doctors and other health personnel working in Makati Medical Center (MMC). Under this program, a total of 250 packed meals will be delivered daily to MMC at lunchtime, and another 250 at dinner time. This program will run from March 28 until April 11 and hopefully, will help provide some comfort to our frontliners at MMC.

Thank you for your continued support and patronage of the Club. May you and your family stay safe and healthy.



Sincerely,
