Safety Tips

  • Unvaccinated individuals must use a face covering while on the pool deck, in common areas, and when social distancing is not possible. Face coverings are not required when in the water.
  • Individuals and family groups are asked to stay together and maintain six feet of social distancing from other groups at all times.
  • Restrooms in locker rooms will be available. We ask patrons to minimize their time in those areas by coming to the pool in their swim attire and showering at home. Marked alternate exits will be available for those who wish to avoid exiting through the locker room. Lockers will not be available for use. Patrons will have to take their belongings with them on the pool deck and place them in a chair assigned to the lap lane they are using.
