Hello again. I hope this finds you all in good health and doing well.
At this point, I was hoping for some more guidance from King County as to whether or not we would be able to add family swimming to our schedule. Unfortunately, I heard back from the county this morning and was instructed to continue operations as we are until told otherwise.
As we wait for updates and continue to look for ways to provide opportunities for the membership to use the pool, we are making adjustments to our procedures in order to make sure we can continue to provide a safe experience for all swimmers and staff. We have received a lot of positive feedback about adding our two walking lanes (lanes 7 & 8) in the last week. Moving forward, we will be keeping one lane empty between the walking lanes and the lap swim lanes in order to improve social distancing. We are also asking all swimmers/walkers to either refrain from conversing while in the walking lanes or to wear a mask if you intend to socialize while walking in the lanes. We are happy to provide a mask for this purpose.
We had the heath inspector stop by this past week and he seemed very happy with both our planning and effort in regard to our COVID operations. A big shout out to all of you that have been coming swimming and doing a great job of making all of this work so well!
The health inspector did note that taking a quick soap shower before entering the pool is the one thing we could improve upon. By doing this we will not only help maintain a higher level of water quality while using less chemicals, but we’ll also keep our brand new filtration system functioning at its peak for many years to come. Now we are aware that the showers can sometimes be a bit chilly, and while we do our best to have them be warm at the beginning of each swim, with such limited usage this has sometimes been a challenge. Please try your best to get that shower in though. Thanks!
Just a few things regarding Omnify and the reservation system to touch base on.
Remember you may only swim under a reservation with your name on it. Please do not book a swim for your spouse, partner, or child and then show up in their place. When checking in we will be asking for your first and last name, please make sure that you are indeed the one that is supposed to be swimming.
We have had some issues with members adding their own family members on Omnify. Moving forward, you will need to contact Julie if you want to add family members to your account. A reminder that only individuals living in your household can be added as family members to your account.
To add a family member to your account email Julie at: email@example.com with the following information:
Name of family member
Email for the family member (This could be the same as your email)
1 swim per day policy: There has been some confusion around how many times you can swim per day. Each member is allowed 1 swim per day. This is to allow for as many people to have access to swims as possible. We appreciate your understanding.

Stay well, and thanks for wearing that mask!
