  • Regular Admission and Membership fees are in effect
  • Patrons are required to come dressed in swim attire, only those who require aquatics swim diapers will be allowed to change into their swim attire at the facility (i.e. infants). After their activity, patrons will promptly change and exit the building. This allows for staggered entry and exit from the facility, as well enhanced cleaning practices incorporated in an efficient way. To accommodate this:
    • The facility change spaces will all be universal – patrons will enter through change rooms #1 and #2 and exit through the universal change room (#3). Lockers will not be available for use at this time.
    • Patrons will check in at the front desk prior to their activity to make payment, answer applicable health screening questions, and receive a bin to place their belongings in. All personal items will be stored in the designated area on the pool deck.
    • Upon exiting the scheduled swim time, patrons may use the showers in universal to rinse, however extended cleansing and grooming will be discouraged to allow for disinfection of change rooms prior to the next booking time.
  • Whirl Pool and Sauna remain closed at this time.
