It is paramount that patrons follow the new rules and regulations outlined herein as failure to do so may result in dismissal from the aquatics facility.

First and foremost, patrons are expected to self-test themselves for possible symptoms of COVID-19 virus. If, within 24 hours of your reservation date, you exhibit any of the following symptoms, (not associated to another issue such as allergies), you should stay home and should NOT visit the pool or any other public places: Temperature greater than 100.4 F, coughing, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle ache, headache, and sore throat, new loss of taste or smell, diarrhea, If you have come into contact with someone who has, or is suspected to have the COVID-19 virus, please do NOT visit the aquatics facility.
