Policies and procedures may change as recommendations from the CDC and Cuyahoga County Board of Health evolve throughout the summer season.  We ask for your flexibility and understanding as we navigate the ever-changing landscape as a community. 

General Policies:

  • Unvaccinated members and guests must mask inside and when social distancing with people outside your group can not be observed.
  • Lifeguards will place chairs in groups of two to four chairs each evening and groups will be spaced at least six feet apart. Members may clean chairs with sanitizer provided by the Rec.  Members may move the chairs.
  • Lifeguards are not the social-distance police of those in the pool. Patrons must social distance themselves from those not in their family/pod. Pool Directors will assist with social-distancing reminders.
  • During each safety break, patrons will be reminded to wash hands, social distance, and wear masks.
  • High-touch surfaces will be routinely sanitized by pool staff.
  • If the pool nears capacity limits, the manager may stop members and guests from entering the facility until social distancing can be maintained.

Swim Team:

  • Swimmers will be socially distanced every 3ft during practice alongside the pool wall.  Cones will be used as distance markers.
  • Swimmers may not congregate before or after practice.
  • The start and end times of morning practices are separated by 10 minutes to reduce bottle-necking at the pool entrance.  Ages 11 and older 8-8:50a.m.  Ages 10 and under 9-9:50.
  • Swimmers should mask at arrival and departure.
  • Further details on swim meets forthcoming.
