Swimmers are expected to arrive prepared to swim and leave promptly following their scheduled time. Showers and changing of clothes must be done off site. Pool areas will be monitored and disinfected regularly.
Upon arrival, all swimmers will be asked to wait outside the Wellness Center to complete a series of questions. Members will then enter through the pool lobby. Swimmers will receive a 5-minute warning before the end of their swim period. At the end of your 45-minute reservation period, please exit through the side door into the back hallway and follow the hallway to the side door beside the fitness classroom.
As always, your safety is our top priority. If you do not feel safe in any of our facilities, please continue to stay at home. Outdoor pool opening and indoor water exercise class information will be published soon. Stay tuned for more opening announcements next week.
