July 22nd Update…

From the Manager
This past Sunday seemed very busy at the pool, almost pre-pandemic busy. The fantastic weather along with the expanded guest policy came together where indeed over half of the people at the pool mid-day were guests on what turned out to be a pretty crowded day. While the numbers were still way under our capacities, there was a bit of an uncomfortable feel, especially after operating with limitations over the last year and a half.

It was also evident that many of the guests visiting were not as practiced at keeping their distance on the deck or while in the pool as those in our membership have been doing. Additionally, many of the guests were unfamiliar with our pool rules as well.

As the season continues we’re hoping that the novelty of bringing guests to the pool will start to subside. In the meantime we will continue to monitor guest usage so that we have a clearer understanding of the impact and make adjustments to our guest policies if needed. We will also not be scheduling larger groups of guests during prime time hours from 2:30-5:30pm. 

Finally we ask that if you are thinking of bringing any guest to the pool that they know and understand what the expectations are for distancing and masking. It would also be helpful if they know what our pool rules are as well.

Thank you!
