[ARCHIVED] SIGNIFICANT CHANGE TO MAIN POOL OPERATIONS - TAKES AFFECT IMMEDIATELY
Changes to pools: Announcement LINK
Updates to CT Sector Rules – November 25, 2020
The State of Connecticut released updated sector rules this afternoon that have a significant impact on the Main Pool schedule and operations. These changes take affect immediately.
The published updated sector rules include the following change to pool capacities that had not previously been announced:
"CAPACITY - No more than 4 swimmers will be allowed in the pool at any time. Patrons on the pool deck area shall maintain 6 ft social distancing at all times. "
If you had reservations in the Main Pool for Friday, November 27th and forward, your reservations have been cancelled. We are actively working on an updated schedule that will be posted on the website here, and released on SignUpGenius for reservations by 6 a.m. tomorrow for, at minimum, November 27th through 29th.
In light of this change, the 11.19.2020 notice regarding removal of reservations after 10:30 a.m. on weekdays and 11:30 a.m. on weekends is officially retracted. All pool lanes will again require SignUpGenius reservation until further notice. All lanes will be single-swimmer lanes. Household members will not be permitted to share lanes. Pool maximum is four swimmers.
- Swim lessons remain unaffected as they remain within capacities.
- The Stroke Clinics scheduled to begin December 1st and later are cancelled.
At this time, these changes only affect the Main Pool and not the Therapy Pool.
We will continue to work diligently for the health and safety of all of our members, staff and other guests through these changes.
We thank you for continuing to support us as we work together to provide the community with valuable options for physical and mental health during these extraordinary times.
