Pool opening update

Under the current Executive Order signed by Governor Kemp this week, community pools are now allowed to open, as long as they comply with CDC, state, and local requirements.

The Board is working to open our pool as soon as possible, but we still have several requirements that need to be met.

First, we need to pass the annual pool inspection by the county. We have requested the inspection and are waiting for confirmation from the county on when it will occur. Due to the impact of COVID-19 on county government functions, there could be a delay or a backlog of requests. It may be a few weeks depending on the county’s schedule and availability. We continue to follow up regularly on the expected date.

Second, we’re working to implement CDC and state requirements regarding COVID-19 to open safely, some of which were just issued yesterday, including:

  • Obtaining and installing required signage about COVID-19
  • Obtaining hand sanitizer and additional cleaning supplies
  • Implementing additional cleaning procedures for common surfaces
  • Determining social distancing requirements and additional attendance and use guidelines

The opening date, social distancing requirements, and attendance and use guidelines will be communicated as soon as we are ready to officially open. Please be patient while we determine the specific requirements that need to be implemented for our pool and membership.

In preparation for opening:

  • Please pay your dues if you haven’t already done so. The due date is today, May 15.
  • Do not try to enter the pool until an announcement has been made that the pool is officially open. Even though the cover has been removed and the water has been treated, the pool cannot be used yet. Additionally, you may see people at the pool during this time working in preparation of opening. This also does not mean the pool is open yet.
  • If you have questions, please feel free to contact any Board member or email wsrcboard@gmail.com
