Social Distancing Guidelines for our Pools

  • Absolutely NO drop-ins will be allowed. For pool admission, you MUST have a reservation.
  • Social distancing is required. Allow for 6 feet of space or more throughout the pool area and do not rearrange pool furniture. Please maintain the required social distancing with non-family members in the water as well.
  • To help limit locker room traffic, we ask that you take a cleansing shower before arriving and come dressed in your swim attire.

  • There will be reduced patron capacity at all the pools to support social distancing. Pools will have reduced operating hours and periods of closure throughout the day for cleaning.
  • When your pool session is over, please follow our new exit procedures. The lifeguard will give a 15-minute warning that the swim session is ending.
  • Do not linger or attempt to leave through the entrance.
  • Social distancing should also be adhered to outside of the facility and in the parking lots.
