Pool Opening and Annual Meeting Postponed

The pool will be closed until further notice.  It’s unclear when or if the pool will open this year. 

As of now, Fairfax County has not lifted social distancing restrictions.  Even when Phase One restrictions are lifted there may be other limits placed on pool usage (e.g. no outdoor seating, lap swimming only).  In short, I would not expect the pool to open before July 1.  Pool passes will not be distributed until there is a decision on the opening.

The lifeguard situation is uncertain as well.  International travel restrictions and the inability to recruit local guards are ongoing concerns.  I will be posting a recruitment notice from our pool company, Premier Aquatics, in the event we do open.  Regardless of when we open, the pool and courts will be maintained throughout the summer.  For the pool, proper chemicalization is required by health officials and water must be kept in the pool to maintain its structural integrity.  It should be noted that the virus is not transmitted via chlorinated water.

Finally, we are looking to schedule the annual meeting in the fall when we can hopefully have a live meeting.  Stay tuned for more details on time and location.
