COVID 19 Pool Guidelines

1. Maximum Capacities are as follows:
100% = 10 swimmers
50% = 5 swimmers
33% = 4 swimmers (rounded to nearest whole #)

Current Pool Capacity is 100%

2. 1hr swim time begins when you enter the water. Time will be tracked by lifeguards.

3. If we are not at capacity a time extension can be requested. Please note that in the event of a new swimmer entering the pool requests for lanes will begin with the earliest swimmer to enter the pool per the lifeguards’ tracking sheet.

4. Visit our Weekly Events page and click the Natatorium link to see hours that there is limited lane availability due to reservations.
